This collection was designed by Flor, who is part of the Malabrigo design team, and it was born of two of her major interests: tarot cards and astrology.

Her idea was to make twelve colors, each corresponding to one of the twelve signs of the zodiac.

With this in mind, she created a mood board for each sign, using concepts or key aspects of the personalities popularly attributed to people born under each sign. Then, a color palette was selected based on those to transfer it into skeins. As an example, Pisceans are known for having a fanciful personality so she decided to add some colors typically associated with fantasies such as light blue, purple, and pink typically associated with fantasies and mythical creatures. Next, she added a deep green hue, relating these fantasies with the sea as well, since Pisces is a water sign.

She used the same process with all twelve colors. The process of investigation and experimentation was lengthy, carefully testing and selecting different dyeing methods for each color corresponding to a particular zodiac sign as it had been envisioned.

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag and even skein to skein. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

Pom Poms are easy with the Loome Pom Pom maker or our luxury faux Fur poms!
