Ho Ho Merino!

It's the time of year when those of us who craft start to plan ahead for the holidays. Whether we are selling our wares in craft shows, making gifts for loved ones or maybe inventing craft projects for those classroom parties, we find ourselves looking for the perfect holiday colors.

Today I've listed a few shades of Merino in preparation for the holidays to come. In the left hand column is Holiday Red and Merry Green. It's easy to imagine Santa suits and Christmas trees when you look at these two classic shades.

In the middle column are Crimson Red and Kelly Green. These are perhaps more subdued versions of the classics. They will help add variety and dimension to your color palette.

If traditional is more your cup of tea, the third column may provide what you're looking for. Gypsy Wine and Spruce Green have always been two of my favorites.

I hope you enjoy these happy shades of Ho Ho Merino!
