The Mountain's on fire is a repeating gradient so not true stripes but 2 sets of colours with the "stripes" going from light yellow to a darker blue black and back to light yellow again. This gradient is repeated to give the illusion of striping from a distance.
This is a 6 metre skein and will need to be wound by you before knitting. The best method of doing this is placing the skein over two chairs about 3 metres apart and winding a ball between them. Due to space constraints it is difficult for me to wind the balls, also considering the time it takes, the price reflects this.
