Malabrigo Rios Zodiac Collection

  • Sale
  • Regular price $18.00

This collection was designed by Flor, a member of the Malabrigo design team, who drew inspiration from two of her major interests: tarot cards and astrology.

Flor’s idea was to create twelve colors, each corresponding to one of the twelve signs of the zodiac. To achieve this, she created a mood board for each sign, using concepts or key aspects of the personalities popularly attributed to people born under that sign. She then selected a color palette based on those concepts and transferred them into skeins.

The investigation and experimentation process was lengthy, with careful testing and selection
of different dyeing methods for each color corresponding to a particular zodiac sign as it was envisioned.

This collection is very personal, not only because
it is born from the private interests of a member of the design team, but also because it can be very
personal for the yarns’ end users as well. Knitters will be able to choose a skein correlating to their zodiac sign, and if they have further interest in astrology, they can also choose skeins corresponding to their rising and moon signs, among others. Thus, each knitter will have the chance to purchase multiple colors that could represent their personality traits.
