Everybody's talking about Radiant Orchid (Pantone 18-3224)

Sadly, I think Radiant Orchid looks more like "Mom's 80s Blazer". However, this color does have a lot of interesting close-kin hues that I absolutely love. I've always gravitated towards purples in my wardrobe, so I went looking for yarn in purple tones that have a timeless, wearable quality. From top left: Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in Thistle, Quince and Co. Finch in Crocus, and Madeline Tosh Pashmina in Flashdance. To my eye, these yarns have the color pay off of a bright-bright purple without being too harsh.
