A creamy, deep white with warmth in the light and coolness when paired with a darker color. This is the definitive neutral, a necessity!
If Scotsmen were stubborn about anything — and, in fact, they tended to be stubborn about quite number of things, truth be known — it was the virtues of oatmeal ‘parritch’ for breakfast.
Through eons of living in a land so poor there was little to eat but oats, they had as usual converted necessity into a virtue, and insisted that they liked the stuff.

Carol Peletier is fractured black hue, scattered into bits and fused together by the pure gold of Carol’s soul.
“Och, easy, Sassenach. If ye can stand up, you’re not drunk.” He let go of the mantlepiece, took a step toward me, and crumpled slowly onto the hearth, eyes blank, and a wide, sweet smile on his dreaming face.

An architect/surveyor works in black and white, which is also the color of the dreary surroundings Mr. Jesmond finds himself in on his last job before a weekend away with Jenny.
A fine, masculine, no-nonsense, serious colorway, Mr. Jesmond is black, white (cream) and grey. That’s it.
The stark white & black bark peeks out from leaves which glisten green, yellow and even a touch of orange in their Autumnal transformation.
The yarn color is created by tying off portions of the yarn to be left white, then overdyeing the rest in yellow, green, and a touch of orange. Black is sprinkled to the white areas.
Inspired by the colors of an abstract painting by Caroline Wright, this was originally a color from our DK Yarn club in Winter 2016, and has now joined the ranks of our “freckled” yarns!
Carl Grimes is the iconic blue jean mixed with a strong black and white and touches of red.
This could be named for any of the nuns at Nonnatus House, but Sister Julienne seems the most deserving of her own color. The medium cool blue of the nun’s habits blocked with the white of their wimples and barbettes is one of the more comforting sights in Poplar.
“So my sister was alone in the house, except for two or three of the women servants, and they all rushed upstairs to hide their heads under the bedclothes when they saw the red coats. Thought the soldiers were sent by the devil.
“And I’ll no just say they were wrong.”

The colorway is a mix of black (Lorelai’s raven locks) & brown (coffee!!) with the character influences of Emily’s yellow, Sookie’s pink & Luke’s true blue nature.
Luke is true blue. From his baseball cap (a gift from Lorelai) to the walls of his diner, blue looks good on Luke and sums up his dependable nature.
Emily’s color base is an elegant platinum with touches of golden yellow and light pink, reflecting both the cool and the warm aspects of her personality.
The FLOW version of Edinburgh, Stirling features the deep greys and blacks of highland stone plus the almost iridescent greens of the parks of Stirling.
A strong blue with overtones of blue/black make this an unforgettable colorway.
Cream, black and grey, but with the beautiful deep yellow and gold that Jenny seems to favor so much in her ‘nicer’ dresses. This is a color which can stand on it’s own, now as a lovely FLOW colorway.
Strong like the stone, with the depth of color you’d expect from a felsic intrusive igneous rock. Pair this with a second FLOW color for a mind blowing experience!
