Color Stories: Perennial

If you are like me, you’ve been enjoying all the beautiful flowers that are bringing color to our gardens. One of my favorite things to do each winter is plan my garden and every year the goal is to make it even more colorful than last year. This summers blooms have inspired a long-overdue Color Stories post.

We released our Perennial yarn this year and the color palette was directly inspired by flowers. Below are a particularly bright selection that brings my color-loving eyes some pure joy.

Perennial is an incredibly soft and versatile yarn. It is made of 60% Superwash Merino, 25% Suri Alpaca, and 15% nylon. It washes beautifully and will knit up into items you (and the baby!) will be able to wear regularly. Next up on my needles is the Colette pullover for my dear friends new baby. I think Lead and Neon Pink look great together but I think I’ll change it up a bit. What colors would you choose?

Look out for Meghan’s beautiful version of A Bow in the Sky coming up soon!

Color Stories: Germantown Collection

The Building Blocks collection colors came from our love of classic styling and design, so we went for a palette of neutrals mixed in with some deep primary hues. We have seen gold and deep plum everywhere this season, so it was a no brainer to include honey and rhododendron. The deep dark (true) navy works well as both a neutral and color, and you can never, ever go wrong with jade!

Color Stories: Mojave Collection

As we mentioned yesterday, Mojave is "Meghan's Yarn" - inspired by her love of cellulose fibers and saturated, bright colors, it will come as no surprise to hear that she wanted a lively collection with pops of color to accompany the release of the yarn. When putting together color inspiration for the designs, we focused on some of the brighter colors, balanced out by a few classic neutrals.

The end result is so lively and bright - perfect for summer knitting!
