Color Story: Sugared Pastels
Color Group: Sweet
I’m always inspired by the delicate nature of ’50’s vintage glass ornaments. When the holidays come around, I’m excited to search the local vintage shops for rare finds. Vintage glass ornaments, such as Shiny Brites, were often “sugared” and came in a variety of pastel colors; much like the yarns below. While these yarns may not be covered with actual glitter per say, they do have shiny or sparkle quality to them. Each of the handcrafted selections features either shiny fibers, metallic threads or seed beads. Perfect for that knit or crochet project you’ve been planning, to coordinate with your best holiday dress. Now tie on that apron and start the cocktails!
1) Swirlipop by Lush Mommy; a beautiful swirl of pastel tints and shiny fibers. This selection embodies the perfect ’50’s pastel palette.
2) Silver/Lavender by Crafty Yarns; this recycled yarn features silk metallic threads. The soft variegated tones of lavender pair nicely with the icy silk thread make a very soft yet striking statement.
3) Merino Wool by Fiber Fancy; the perfect shade of pink featuring tiny seed beads giving it that perfect bit of sugar. The contrast thread gives it additional depth and detail.
