Variegated Threads or Cloth

Skein of variegated yarn Skein of variegated yarn TRC collection.

A variegated thread or cloth is a material dyed in two or more colours. In contrast, shaded refers to a thread or cloth dyed from light to dark using one colour (also called ombré). The terms 'shaded' and 'variegated' are often (incorrectly) used synonymously.
