12 Blends: The Meaning Behind the Colors of the Zodiac Scarves

February 24th, 2014

We craft to inject the personal into the day-to-day and to infuse our lives meaning.  The yarn we choose speaks to us because we can instantly visualize it as a sweater or a scarf or an afghan, or simply because we like the color.  Color also speaks to us on a more mystical level – often symbolizing deeper meanings: red for love and passion; white for purity; yellow for cheerfulness, to name a few.

Lion Brand’s Design team takes this concept further with it’s Zodiac scarves collection.  Colors from the Vanna’s Choice collection were chosen to represent attributes related to each astrological sign.  We thought you might be interested in learning what each of the colors we chose represents.

Make one for yourself or make one for a friend. As with all of Lion Brand’s designs, our Zodiac scarves are a craft that encourages the personal to shine through.
