“Greys are better with yellow/red speckles” is the second lightest colorway from the “Greys are better with speckles”-Fade-Set (color 2 of 5). This is the original “Greys are better with speckles” colorway that I based the whole fade on.

This colorway is dyed with a light grey base (the grey base gets gradually more intense in volume from one color to the next) and has beautiful added speckles in shades of bright yellow and red, which also results in beautiful tones of orange.


The photos have been taken with the colorway dyed on: Hazel Soft Sock 6ply (the skeins in the photos have been reskeined, and all skeins in this colorway dyed on Hazel Soft Sock 6ply will come re-skeined, all other yarn bases don’t need the reskeining, so the speckles don’t look as distributed throughout the skeins as they do in these photos.)


Additional information and care instructions:


Each and every skein is a truly handmade product – from the handdyed skein to the yarnband and label design. We take great care in taking/editing the pictures of our products so they look as close to reality as possible – but please note that these are “catalogue pictures”, we don’t take pictures of each and every single skein of yarn but try to do our best to represent the colorway and it’s varieties in the photos we use (the representation obviously also depends on your screen/computer).


I dye in increments of 2-4 skeins per pot, so please make sure to attach a note with your order if you want to use your yarn for projects that use more than 1 skein per colorway, so I can make sure that those skeins come from the same dye batch. Depending on your gauge, pooling might still be possible, although I try my best to prevent that from happening with my dyeing techniques. I highly recommend alternating your skeins for multiple skein-projects!


For best results and long wear I recommend handwashing your knitted items – in cold to max. lukewarm water with wool wash. Lay flat to dry.
I am using professional acid dyes and citric acid to dye my yarns (vinegar for stellina yarn bases), but I make sure to soak and wash them with ecological wool wash (Ecover) after the dyes have set and rinse them until the water runs clear before drying. But because of the nature of some dyes (especially reds/ blacks/ turquoise/ blues), “bleeding” of excess dyes is still a possibility.
