PANTONE colour of the year 2024- Peach Fuzz

Colour of the year

Nothing symbolises the ambition, to reconnect, more than the latest PANTONE colour of the year Peach Fuzz. 
PANTONE tells us that Peach Fuzz:
"captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others. It's a velvety gentle peach tone whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body, and soul."
This warm, delicate hue is set to demonstrate our yearning for closeness and connectivity, whilst also leaving its mark on the crafting world, inspiring a plethora of artistic, fashion and homeware endeavours. 
This soft, embracing shade is anticipated to become a staple in crafters' palettes, lending an air of sophistication to various projects. From crochet blankets to watercolour paintings, expect Peach Fuzz to make a prominent appearance, subtly infusing projects with its calming charm.

Let's delve into the top five craft trends, that along with Peach fuzz, will be set to dominate the scene in 2024.
