Don’t tell the boss but I am spilling the beans today. I just happened to be stretching my legs(OK, I was snooping, but let’s keep that between us) and found myself in our design/sample room. This is the place where all the magic happens. After all the trips have been taken and all the trade shows have been attended, this is the spot where the best of the best end up to be test knitted and designed into something beautiful.
I was excited to see a few things but what really caught my eye was the vivid and fun colors in the Grignasco line. NEON! I managed to get a shot of the fluorescent fabulousness in the Kid Seta line and wanted to share. Ask your yarn shop today about these great colors. Yarn shops-call your reps! You have to see these!

This week, our Marketing Director, Christine had the opportunity to visit the Pitti Filati show in Florence, Italy.
Beautiful views in Florence
another beautiful sight
Christine with our agent, Peri
This event demonstrates the latest innovations in yarns, yarn technology and stitch design. You can see all of the newest fiber trends on the horizon in some of the pictures below.
Lots of great hats to be seen
We also wanted to share the color trend chart.
I'll take one in every color!
With over 100 yarn brand representatives in attendance, it proves to be one of the most diverse and exciting events we attend.
The show’s focus this year is in ethical quality. Fiber prices are higher than we have ever seen. This directly influences all of our choices. Plymouth Yarn Company strives to keep the quality you deserve and the affordability you crave. These decisions are difficult ones and we have discovered some fabulous fibers!
The yarn I love, the pants...not so much!
Knit & Crochet unite!
You won't catch me in this one but the colors are fabulous!
Keep any eye out for new colors in some of your favorite yarns. We are also considering two new beautiful yarns from Peru and just wait until you can feast your eyes (and needles) on Mushishi Black. We would like to announce that coming soon…Plymouth Yarn will be the exclusive distributor for Grignasco Knits in the United States!
