Introducing Aurifil Color Builder, a capsule of twelve curated mini-collections inspired by (and named after) Italy’s most vibrant and colorful destinations. Each collection contains three large spools of 50wt thread — a warm, a medium, and a dark — within the location’s primary color palette. From the lemon groves of Sicily to the pink sand beaches of Sardinia to the clear teal waters of Capri to the stark city grey of Milan… each collection is crafted to evoke images of our beloved Italian landscape. The colors were selected not only for their aesthetic appeal, but for their practicality in every day use. Quilter, sewist, and makers will appreciate the Color Builder collections for their beauty and for their utility.
Milan Grey:Your morning begins with a brisk walk through the city, down a series of narrow cobblestoned streets, the noise of trams and weaving vespas giving way to the morning bustle. The streets are bursting with smartly dressed people, soaking up the morning sun, sipping fresh coffee, and reading the daily paper. The sweet smell of jasmine lingers in the air, and a new day begins in Milan.
