Tonals are currently a hot trend, the salt and pepper of the yarn world and also a thing of beauty. This remarkable dye technique is achieved by use of a large vat or kettle. The yarn is immersed into a single colour dye bath and the outcome is a fascinating interplay of light and dark tones which create the illusion of shadows and highlights. This Fall, Debbie Bliss introduces Cashmerino Aran Tonals to knitters as an addition to her existing Cashmerino range, in a three-way blend of wool, cashmere and acrylic spun with a smooth even ply.
If you are on the hunt for rich colour and depth in a plush cosy yarn, take a closer look at Cashmerino Aran Tonals, available for Fall knitting in eight dusky shades –
Crew Neck Cable Sweater (DB044) – A pretty heather tonal shade highlights the details on this classic Aran design complete with raglan sleeves and a closed-in neckline. Aubergine (shown above).
Simple Tank (DB043) – Boxy and cropped in the front, this contemporary vest demonstrates how simple moss stitch can be transformed into a tweedy texture with a lovely tonal yarn. Pewter (shown above).
Diagonal Cable Sweater (DB042) – Interesting diagonal lines quietly branch out from a central cable on this turtleneck design which also offers the option of a standard crew. Peacock (shown above).
