If you prefer to work with a preselected palette, we’ve partnered with Tien Chiu to develop 3 colorways for the Discover Gradients Weave Along. Each kit contains enough yarn for warp and weft and has multiple color options. We have the yarns available in 3/2, 8/2 and 10/2 yarns. For those doing the weave along on a rigid heddle loom, choose a 3/2 kit. The 3/2 and 10/2 yarns are our Tubular Spectrum™ Mercerized cotton yarns on 4 oz cones, and the 8/2 yarns are Maurice Brassard unmercerized cotton yarns on 8 oz cones.
After a year of staying home, we looked to the places we wished we could go for color inspiration for a place to begin your journey into Gradients. The colorways were designed to give you a chance to see gradients in action and experiment with how weft colors change the gradients.
Moroccan Sunrise Colorway
If you enjoy warm Reds, Golds, and rich Browns you will love this colorway. We picked 4 colors: a brilliant yellow, a more muted yellow orange, a bright red, and a deeper red/brown to give a sense of rich tones of Morocco. Can you smell the cardamom and cinnamon on the morning air?
Adriatic Sea Colorway
If cool Blues and Greens are more pleasing to you this may be your favorite colorway! We picked 4 colors: A Bright Green and a softer Green, with a deep Blue paired with lighter, softer cooler shades to give the feeling of this lovely forest lined sea. Can you smell the pine trees along the shore?
Treasure of Tyre Colorway
We all love purple. The 4 colors of this colorway: The rich purple and a soft purple/pink with a brilliant Blue and a lighter Blue/Blue Gray shade evoke the juxtaposition of ancient dyes of Tyre and the modern city in Lebanon. Can you smell the salty pools where the murex snails kept their hidden treasure?
Please note that we will need to be a little flexible with the colors in the kits. 2020 and 2021 have been hard on the global supply chain and cotton yarn production has its challenges. However, now that we have 45 fabulous colors of our Tubular Spectrum™ yarns, we will easily be able to substitute a similar color if we run out a color.
The colors in your kit are listed in the kit description when you click on the drop down menus.
If you are unsure about whether to choose mercerized or unmercerized yarns, we wrote a blog post about that very question. Click here.

Here are the color swatches for the colors currently in the kits. Please note that we may have to make some color substitutions as time goes on. We will update the colors as the substitutions become necessary.
