It may also be helpful to distinguish what is not variegated. I start my Hand Paint Magic spinning and knitting classes by defining solid color yarn, semi-solid yarn (one color but a variety of saturation) and hand painted yarn.
There are so many varieties of commercial yarns available now, I would be very interested in learning the industrial vocabulary for some of these yarns - distinguishing self patterning sock yarn for instance from the Kureyon /Kauni very slow color shift, and many other variations.

Are you looking for generally commercial options? If not,  as a spinner and knitter I can think of gradients, handpainted, humbug, space dyed, ikat, barberpole, ... And within hand or dip dyes  there's regular and irregular repeats. All for starters 😊 Even the traditional "variegated" yarns could be in a variety of color options as different as the places on a color wheel. If you want to go in that direction try researching color theory to learn primaries, secondaries, tertiaries, etc.

My local study group is going to focus on variegated yarns this year.   Does anyone know of terms used to describe these multi-colored yarns?  I have a feeling that communication may be one of the larger issues we will need to deal with.

How cool ... We have been on Lisio tours twice within the past 3 years. It’s an amazing place and I subscribe to their beautifully published magazine. By the way ... Happy New Year! Chris and I just returned from a holiday, 18 day tour with friends ... London (Anni Anlbers at the Tate ... awesome), Cape Town tours, 3 days of Safari, 3 days at Victoria Falls, and then back to London for 2 1/2 days,  ... “Fashioned by Nature” at the V&A ... mind blowing!  ... and then home. Just returned this past Friday and spent the weekend in Millbrook to Recover. Headed to NC tomorrow. Have never been away for 18 days! Definitely leaves a new impression of the world ... retirement looks nicer and nicer. By the way, what do we need to do to get together? Weekends look open and we make a nice fire ... sleep overs are welcome. Take a look at calendars and let us know what might work. Too much time has gone by. It’s time to reconnect!

For training in traditional velvet design, look into Lisio in Florence, Italy.

Hello Cate,

Maybe you can get in touch with Wendy Landry who teaches velvet weaving seminars. I'm glad I could assist to one years ago in Valleyfield (Que, Canada).


Lots of links about her work on Google.

I've seen technical drawings of the looms used for the face to face velvet,
but not information about designing.
You might want to contact the textile departments of universities that offer
degrees in textile design and engineering and see what they have in their
libraries.

I couldn't get into the site either directly but was able to get to it from another site that had a link - not sure of the difference.  Anyway, she does sell scarf blanks.  The info is here - https://www.machineknittingtodyefor.com/product-category/kits-and-booklets/
