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.
Pompeii Red:The sun beats overhead as you slowly make your way through the ruins. Bright red stones stand out against shades of soft grey and white, telling silent stories of an ancient and tragic history. Pompeii stands as a remarkable tribute to a once vibrant city, looking out over the mighty Mount Vesuvius, whispering of the strength of the Italian people.
