About this Color
This gradient is part of our Chromatic Pairs Collection - a sweet array of single-color gradients moving from light to medium, and then medium to dark.
*A Rose By Any Other Name and La Vie en Rose Chromatic Pair Set* reminds us of dewy English roses and Midwestern spring lilacs. The lighter cake offers a smooth gradient that moves through six shades of pale pink to a perfect deep rose and the darker cake continues on to the deepest rosy shade we know. These two colors combine to make a great color for when you’re meeting Mr. Darcy for tea.
*Garden Gnome and Happy Little Trees Chromatic Pair Set* combines the color of the hedges that hide the entrances to the underground gnome dwellings with the painterly leafy to dark foliage green. Often depicted as mischievous creatures, gnomes were probably also really good knitters and painters.
*Orange You Glad and Pumpkin Spice Latte Chromatic Pair Set* Orange You Glad we created the perfect, but never basic, orange combination?
*Sweet Babboo and Vampire Boyfriend Chromatic Pair Set* is a contradiction of inspirations. The lighter colors was inspired by Linus and his blanket, and Sally and Linus - a sweet tragicomic love triangle from the land of Peanuts. Who doesn’t want a Sweet Babboo? Pale pink smoothly transitions to rose-red in this love-tinged colorway. The darker cake fades from a blood red to scab rust, before ending in a dramatic, deep red-black. Crack open a bottle of O Negative in Bon Tempes. Care for a bite?
*Surf's Up and Under the Sea Chromatic Pair Set* is a luscious vacation with all the colors of the Caribbean Sea. The lighter cake features shades of pale and continues through the cool spectrum to turquoise blue. The darker cake shifts from turquoise to the deepest blue-green of the ocean.

Notes about Knitcircus Yarns
- Because of our unique dyeing process, many of our darker colors appear heathered, with small light spots sprinkled throughout. This heathering is normal.
- Care for this yarn is to hand or machine wash cold (delicate cycle), dry flat. Our yarns are colored using professional-grade acid dyes.
- We’ve made every effort to photograph the color accurately, but appearance may vary depending on your monitor settings.
