May '23 YOTM: The Mad Scientist of Summerisle

by Dye Mad Yarns


This month’s color is inspired not by the Nicholas Cage version of Wicker Man but the original 1973 version, and we’ve called it THE MAD SCIENTIST OF SUMMERISLE. We take inspiration from shots of Christoper Lee being a weirdo. The turquoise speckles come from the line from Neil Howie, “Broad beans, in their natural state, aren’t usually turquoise, are they?” 

Some things in their natural state have the most… vivid colors!
