Sam at sKNITches hand-dyes our custom UT colorway for us.  We named it "New Traditions" as we began getting this custom colorway the year that Coach Butch Jones added the gray to our orange & white colors.  This self-striping yarn is patterned in traditional collegiate stripes and makes wonderful items for us to make as we support and celebrate our UT Vols football team.
