Plow Chicka Plow Wow

by Dye Mad Yarns


Part of our SnOhio collection, inspired by the Ohio Turnpike's 2022 Name-A-Snowplow Contest Winners, is Plow Chicka Plow Wow. This is a pun based on the onomatopoeia "Bow Chicka Bow Wow", which is the stereotypical funk riff used in the soundtracks to pornographic films. 

How exactly does one dye "Plow Chicka Plow Wow"? When we made notes for what we wanted to convey, we wrote down "horny colors"... What are "horny colors"?? I don't know but I think we managed it.

Our Plow Chicka Plow Wow yarn takes inspiration from the colors of Ohio's snow plows and adds a little bit of a fishnet flair. It features safety orange, truck red, road slush grey with black hatches to somehow work with its namesake.
