The first and last word in color is often punctuated by Pantone. The global authority on color since the 2000’s, Pantone has continued the tradition of selecting a “Color of the Year”, which attempts to capture the zeitgeist of each year. For the first time, the color of the year for 2022 was created especially for this celebration of color!
The past few years have brought a great many changes to the lives of people around the globe. Though we have been more isolated than ever, we’ve also all been experiencing the same event as a collective global community. Very Peri was developed by Pantone to try to capture those feelings of change, isolation, and connection.
Another main theme of this year is color’s inherent communicative property, especially the communication of ideas and emotion. Of course, here at Darn Good Yarn we totally agree that colors have the ability to communicate and inspire creativity! We have always valued bright bold colors, and center those beautiful colors in our yarn and apparel lines. We feel like it’s a joy to wear and create with such cheerful hues.
With a color this pretty and a story this interesting, we just had to curate a limited edition collection of yarn inspired by the Pantone color of the Year 2022! We’ve all been feeling the effects of a constantly changing world emanating from the global Covid crisis, though perhaps 2022 will bring us the light at the end of the tunnel. With a focus on the future, enjoying the little things, and cherishing the relationships we’ve grown; this bright purple embodies the spirit of hope, growth, and moving toward a more collective future.
We’ve been inspired, and we hope you will be too! Take advantage of our Very Peri Ultimate Crafting bundle and receive one of each, plus some extra fun purple notions and tools!
There’s no better way to express yourself than creativity that comes from the heart. This year, find the yarn that sings to you, connect to your imagination, and celebrate the connections we all share!
