Developing yarn lines takes a long time, and our lead times can be up to a year in some cases! We’re just entering the new year, and we already have to start planning new colors for Fall/Winter 2012. Our meetings aren’t starting for about two weeks, so I thought I would check in with our blog readers and see if you have any suggestions for exciting new shades that you’d like to see in our non-cotton, non-lace yarns (think warm wool, cozy alpaca, and our other cold-weather yarn lines).
Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2012 is Tangerine Tango – is there a color that you feel is fresh, new, and just needs to be seen in yarn form? Have you ever played around with sites like ColourLovers or Kuler for color inspiration? Give us your color ideas in the comments below!
