Yuzu is a layered gradation that combines natural Egyptian Cotton with a range of yellows and oranges. The wraps 80% Egyptian Cotton - I used a couple cotton yarns and an organic cotton yarn to expand my color palette. In the design of the warp, I experimented with layering on each of the six colored yarns in successive sections, leading to a mix of all the colors in the final section. This gives a bit of a pinstriped effect - with a lot of interesting detail that can be seen up close - while appearing as a smooth gradation of color from a distance. The structure is my standard two-block pointed twill. It is woven with a sett of 30 EPI.

The wefts

I chose to work with natural yarn for about half the wraps and dyed for the other half. Using natural gave me an opportunity to incorporate some new yarns, including an amazing 10/2 organic Pima cotton yarn. The silk/cotton yarn that appeared in Darwaza dyed Persimmon is also used here in it's natural state. As is my favorite superwash wool. 

For the colored wefts, I tried to stick with the soft melon/apricot range of tones but brought in a vivid coral for one and dahlia for another for a darker, more saturated look. One of the yarns I hand-dyed - the hemp/cotton yarn. It is a soft melon color that has is slightly variegated.
