Pantone is a global color authority, located in Carlstadt, NJ (coincidentally, Carlstadt is also the home of Lion Brand’s corporate offices). Many industries use Pantone’s service to determine which colors to feature on their products – everything from housewares to fabrics.
How is the color of the year determined? The experts at Pantone immerse themselves in the culture, pulling together colors that organically seem to pop up everywhere. They find the common denominator and it is then identified as the most important color trend for the next year. Pantone also considers how the meaning of the color relates to cultural events and the overall mood at the time.
The color for 2015 is Marsala, a rich, deep color that indicates stability. It’s wonderful for fashion because it is flattering against many skin tones and appeals to both men and women. Spotted on the runways this past season, Marsala is an earthy, 70s throwback, basic, and a neutral color that makes an interesting alternative to black, grey and off-white. In a wardrobe, this color is considered a staple, and it’s wonderful as an accent in the warmer months.

As you can probably tell by the name, Heartland is inspired by prominent American landmarks and landscapes — Kings Canyon, Mammoth Cave, Glacier Bay, and Shenandoah to name a few. Composed of deep heathered and even tweed shades, I often refer to them as jewel-like because of the yarn’s vibrant colors. It is an easy-care yarn perfect for garments, afghans and accessories for kids and adults – best of all Heartland is made in the USA!
Even better, from now until the end of December, Heartland is 20% off!
There are many wonderful patterns that use this yarn — and many are just perfect for the holiday season.
