Our Wheel of the Year colorways are each named after a different witchy holiday, and the colors themselves transition through the seasons, from the bright, vibrant greens of spring through the pinks and reds of the flowers of summer through the deep red and brown rusty colors of fall. Starting at the greenest, we have: Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lammas, Mabon, Samhain, and Yule.
We initially debuted these colorways as a part of Witch in a Box kits, in which we paired a full skien with holiday-specific items from our friend Debby from Chicken Coop Botanicals. As we worked our way through the year, exploring the changing of the seasons through yarn, we started to develop a collaborative way to share the colors and celebrate the holidays.
In Fall 2019, we debuted Let’s Get Knitted Wit-chy, a collaboration with some of our fave designer friends, pairing the Wheel of the Year witchy holiday colors with really amazeballs designs they came up with. The patterns are all still available through these designers, so check them out and support the heck out of them, and the yarns remain, to this day, one of our favorite offerings. For the collaboration, we paired mini skeins of 6 of the witchy colors (Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lammas, and Mabon) with full skeins of Canopy (green), Pollen (gold/yellow), Wild Orchid (purple), and Samhain (brown variegated).
