Prism Hand-Dyed Colors:
Welcome to our colors page. Here you can explore the many ways we dye yarn,
how the skeins appear and how they look when knit.
Skeins in Tundra, Threads in Bayleaf, Knit in Gray
Merino Mia is the base of choice for our eight-color gradient packs. Colors range either from the barest tint to full strength, or through a range of related colors. Carefully calibrated shades ensure a seamless transition through all the shades. Click for Gradients Gallery
Skeins in Conifer, Bracken, Raspberry, Peony; Threads in Rosamund, Knit in Jade.
These beautiful, marbleized colors occur through a multiple step process that
produces subtle, rich colors that will not stripe or pool. Composed of multiple
parents, the colors reveal blends of all.
Multi-shown on wool: Skeins in Senegal, Embers, Yosemite, Tahoe, Freesia; Threads in Coral Reef, Knit in Harvest.
Our multi-colors have long runs of clear colors. When worked in stockinette or garter, the colors tend to stripe and pool. Prism's style of dyeing is perfect for planned pooling as the precision of color length and saturation is carefully controlled and consistent. Shown in wool and rayon.

Skeins in Dune, Wisteria, Aqua; Threads in Wisteria, Knit in Dune.
Precision dyeing of two colors onto cream allows for Magic Number knitting
that produces spectacular graphic effects. Each skein has four sections: two
related colors separated by two sections of cream.
Skeins in Blue, Gray, Plum; Threads in Plum, Knit in Gray.
Like Ikat Colors, Shades have been precision dyed but with one section of cream and one section of a dark color, separated by two sections of light color. Magic Number knitting produces similar results to Ikat, but with only 25% cream instead of 50%. Click for Shades Gallery
