Specific Variegated Yarns and Threads

by Linda

The biggest question of all when working with variegated yarns is: How long is the repeat? Is it one of those yarns where the colours repeat every foot or so, or every 5 or 6 feet? This can make a huge difference to whether you choose to go ahead and try this yarn for this particular project, or try to find one more suitable.

It's taking quite some time to gather up this information, so please, if you happen to have a ball or two of variegated yarn handy and could spare a moment to take a few measurements and make a few notes, please do so and send them to me. I'll add them to this page and we can all have a permanent record to help us choose a yarn for our next project. Thanks very much in advance...
