Can You Repeat That?

How long, exactly is that color repeat? You see a gorgeous gradient braid, and wonder-gee how long would that fractal be. The answer, is fairly surprising.

Shown here on targhee superwash-a rainbow colorway. Surprise! About 2 feet of continuous color tucks into a tiny 4 inches of braid. Isn't it incredible, how it's deceiving? As an example, the stretch of chartreuse green is fairly compact.

So, you get a lot of color! Which is great when spinning fractal style. (fancy word for striped)

It's pretty amazing, so now, when browsing to enhance your stash you can visualize better how much color you'll get. A lot of fiber packs into those 4oz hanks I dye.
