"Oh, The Horror!" - September Colour of the Month (Non Subscription Option)

Yarn Base

Note: SOCKNADO will be available at the end of September!

Unique colour creations exclusively available each month.

The team at here at Ancient Arts were chatting one day at lunch about our favourite cult classics - and of course The Rocky Horror Picture Show was the top of everybody's list! We had great fun reminiscing about when we first saw it (one of us - ahem - even before it became a participation event), and where! The movie was so much fun, and so outrageously different that it is no wonder it became an instant cultural phenomenon. Some of us even started singing the songs, or the bits we could remember, and trying to do the Time Warp - again! Caroline remembers that once when she saw it, somebody threw buttered toast in the air, and it landed in her lap - still warm! She still wonders how the fan managed to keep toast warm! 

As a result of this impromptu trip down memory lane, we decided that the Halloween themed colour this year just had to be based on this much loved cult classic! And since some of our customers have expressed a desire to receive the Halloween colour earlier than the beginning of October so they could have lots of to time to finish a project for the big night, we are delighted to present "Oh, The Horror!" for the September Colour of the Month!
