- examples of colorways -

new in 2017: no standard set of colorways - a variety of colorways will be offered - new, OOAK, and previous colors - not all bases will be available in all colorways. 

Colorway descriptions: 

Below are general descriptions of colorways. There will likely be differences from skein to skein, as each skein is essentially individually hand dyed. Each base takes the dye differently, due to factors such as fiber content, number of plies, twist, and weight.
