Designing a New SweetGeorgia Colour System

SweetGeorgia Yarns new hand-dyed colour system

Today is the start of something completely new for us.

After hand-dyeing yarn for over 17 years, we have started from the ground up and created a new process for designing our hand-dyed yarn colours. And on today’s Taking Back Friday vlog, I want to share this new colour system with you and why we created it.

Join me today, September 23rd at 10:00 AM PDT (1:00 PM EDT) for a vlog premiere! I will be live over at our YouTube channel to chat during the release of the video.

This is just the very beginning. Each season we’ll release more colours that will explore more of this colour system and we can’t wait to see where it takes us. I’m so excited to finally share this with you after all of the months we’ve been working on it. I’m really looking forward to seeing what you create with all of these colours!
