Pantone + Malabrigo

While we’re no slave to color trends (I say Emerald is just as beautiful this year as it was last year!) it’s always fun to see what the Pantone reports indicate will be popular each year. With the new Spring 2014 report out, we thought it’d be fun to go swatch-diving and see what Malabrigo colorways fit the bill!

Top row: Worsted in “Blue Surf”, “Water Green”, “Applewood”, and “Garnet”, Rastita in “Sabidura”
Bottom row: Chunky in “Periwinkle”, Silky Merino in “Cape Cod Gray”, Worsted in “Sauterne”, Lace in “Glazed Carrot”, Lace in “Buscando Azul”

 

(I thought it was funny that “Paloma” is one of the Pantone colors…but our colorway “Paloma” wasn’t quite the best match for it, haha. Close, though!)
