As autumn nights close in, we spend ever more time with the moon. Pom Pom is looking for dreamy knit and crochet pieces that call to mind moon phases, clear nights, lunar eclipses, and all that is beautiful and mystical about our piece of silver in the sky.
Our colour palette incorporates metallic grey, dusky blues (especially deep, dark blue), luminescent mustard, ghostly turquoise, shadowy pinks and purples, and moody burgundy. We are looking for a mix of cool weather garments and accessories and are excited about mohair, silk, and other blends with wool that glow.
