Spring is Springing!
And after our trip across the country to participate in the Spring Show of The National Needle Arts event, we here at Plymouth Yarn are PUMPED! We had a tremendous response for our neon colors in Encore Worsted and our new sock yarn called Neon Now!
After returning from Italy in July on a Yarn Sourcing trip, we witnessed the same about trends. Neon is still wildly out there! It is hot, it is now, and it is available!
Here are a few examples of neon for color combos. I love the one below with the black and grey-see how it makes the orange pop but yet not read completely neon? LOVE THAT!
And then putting orange and fuchsia together? Who’d have thought that worked. But it does! Tell us what you do with neon!

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!
