Tones Light is a fingering weight two-ply yarn that is woolen-spun from 100% Columbia wool. It has a springy feel and gives excellent stitch definition as well as a plush surface after wet finishing. The wool is spun into two heathered bases: a light one that is the natural color of the wool and a darker one that has a small amount of dyed black wool blended in. These two bases are overdyed in eleven different colors so there is a light version (Overtone) and a dark version (Undertone) of each color. The light shade is bright and lively, while the dark is deep and muted. This makes it easy to combine colors. Pair the light and dark of the same color, or two different darks with a contrasting light. Or the two undyed versions (1001 and 1002) with a dyed contrast. There is no limit to the colorwork you can do with the Tones Light palette!
