Is there a difference between variegated and ombre yarn?? I thought one was multi colored and the other was white to dark of a certain color, Like white>light green>med green>dark green. I'm not sure which is called variegated and which is ombre.
Anyway the one I would like to find is the one with the white in it. I never see it at the stores now days. I did a search for variegated and for ombre yarn and it brings up the same yarns I see at the stores, the ones like Walmart has with the multiple colors in it but no white. Do they even make the one with white in it anymore??

it was explained recently in a Talking Crochet newsletter. http://www.anniesatt...nth=5&year=2007 May 2, 2007, Vol. 4 No. 6</B />

When it comes to variegated thread I wish I could find it! All I ever see is ombre and I am over it!!! I hate the way it works up on small projects like Barbie clothes etc.

Sugar 'n Cream has a couple of ombre cotton yarns. I made my first grocery bag out of their blue ombre.

The pink and green ombre are on this page. http://www.sugarncre...sugarncream&P=2

Tan/Brown and a lighter blue http://www.sugarncre...sugarncream&P=4

I like the way Sugar 'n Cream ombres work-up for dishcloths and potholders.
