Early Riser is a continuous hand-dyed, one-of-a-kind gradient. Starting with brillinat lemon yellow, continuing through chrome yellow, gold, saffron, salmon, pink, brilliant pink, and culminating in mauve.
This gradient is dyed on the Helix base. Helix is Sport Weight, 100% Merino wool, and spun into a two-ply structure. 700 yd / 640 m / 240 g.
The dyeing technique I use to make gradients delivers brilliant and saturated colors in a range of variegated, speckled, and semi-solid effects. Each new shade of the gradient brings something new to your needles.
