Lorna's Laces Color Commentary Series

New Color from Lorna's Laces     Brooklyn Tweed Grand Street Ink

Helen's Lace in color Grand Steet Ink


It's here, it's here! Grand Street Ink, the latest in the Color Commentary Series. It's a really rich, wine-y brown-y purple-y beauty. The original color inspiration came from some wonderful graffiti that Jared Flood (http://brooklyntweed.net/blog/) saw on Grand Street in Brooklyn that used heavy swaths of rich indigo and black.

Wendyknit's Sunrise


Wendy's Sunrise



This beautiful color was designed by Wendy Johnson of Wendy Knits. Because her office has a wall o’ windows that faces east, she'll often take a photo of the sunrise. Her favorite sunrises are the dramatic ones. This colorway is her favorite shades of a dramatic sunrise dyed into yarn.

Color: Amy's Vintage Office


Lorna's Laces and Amy found out that they share a love of old metal office furniture and equipment. Who knew? There's something very special about old typewriters, desks and file cabinets. This color way reflects the silver grey metal desks, the retro blue princess phones and plummy grey metal filing cabinets.
