Cracking Crimson is high-energy, complex, and shocking red.

This colorway comes from mixing a berry/magenta, a warm Carmel brown, and a neon tennis ball green-yellow.  Without a red dye in sight, I tugged on either side of the color wheel to land on this truest red in the shop. Neutral+neon, warm warms+ cool warms really balanced like a walker on a tight rope to land on this primary, fire cracker red. 

Growing up, I was always led to believe you couldn't make a "primary color" and thats what made them primary... and that *bugged* me. By juggling back and forth in key and luminous hue, I've learned you can mix *any* primary. It just takes a little creativity. 

Could I dumped pure red dye in a pot? Yeah, probably. But the nuance and depth here is unrivaled for me, and so much more fun. The alchemy of color, if you will.

All yarns are dyed-to-order, so dream big! Select your yarn and quantity of skeins… I’ll dye it up with extra love, just for you<3
