Yarn & Fiber Colors for Week 14

For this week’s colors, we start off in the islands, work our way back to the east coast, then pay an homage to our childhood 🙂

COCONUT LIME is a merino/tencel roving with dark brown, bright green and a bit of white/ecru. I just love those coconut/lime lotions and bath products so had to make a colorway for this!

NORTH SHORE 2 is a new tweed yarn! It’s sooo cool! With 2 plies of non-superwash and 1-ply of superwash yarn, the aquas & peach/oranges have this wonderful combination where the various yarns took the dyes differently.

I just can’t get enough of this colorway so, here it is again, BILTMORE BARK – this time in a new sparkle lace weight! This is merino, silk and stellina (the sparkley stuff).

Now we go back in time. . . Growing up, there was a popular doll called RAINBOW BRITE, who even had her own cartoon series. Though I never had the doll, I always loved her colorful outfit. This is merino/bamboo/nylon roving.

This colorway was inspired by the 1981 hit single, TAINTED LOVE (doesn’t it kinda look like tainted love?). This is a merino lace weight in pinks/purples with a black overlay.

And lastly, a colorway based on a movie that has transcended time and generations . . . EMERALD CITY is named for Dorothy’s destination to seek the wizard who can help her get home in the 1939 classic, The Wizard of Oz.



  1. It is all fantastic, but that Coconut Lime. Well, let’s say it is calling me, but Uncle Sam is getting my money.


    • oh, it’s that time of the year, isn’t?? bah!
