The EPiC LINES INCLUDE: 102 BLENDABLE MULTITONE
and 12 SOLIDTONE COLOR UNITS.
EPiC's Multitone and Solidtone colors are each unique. Open twist strands combine to become any size; colors blend to become countless expanded colors.
EPiC Multitone yarn are 99 natural dimensionally
shaded colors plus Natural, Anthracite, and Non-color for a total of 102
units. These excite the eye when any single Multitone color is multistranded
into a larger individual
color or to see mixtures of Multitones merge into enhanced colors. EPiC Multitones were inspired by the dimension and clarity MAB found in vegetally-dyed
fibres, historic textiles, and rugs. She developed a comprehensive color
system whereby in a single organic dye process, each color flows into its
multiple tones. Multitones effectively display natural shading while functioning
as single colors, millions of which can be created visually by blending strands
of individual colors as a painter mixes paints into a unique palette.
EPiC Solidtone yarn is comprised of 99 solid colors plus Bleach White,
Coal Black, and Ivory, an additional 102 units which complement the EPiC Multitones.

Ivory, 7 fashion tints, plus designer favorites, Brass and Driftwood.
