Crayola and Lion Brand Yarn join together in a colorful and innovative collaboration.

Lion Brand Yarn Company is excited to announce a licensing partnership with Crayola. This collaboration unites two brands known for their innovative exploration of color and creativity, with the shared belief in unleashing and celebrating the originality of every person. By joining forces, these two homegrown American companies, both over 100 years old, aim to introduce children to the joy of crafting with yarn, and to give people of all ages an opportunity to combine their knit and crochet projects with the colors they knew and loved as children. Lion Brand brings a tactile element to Crayola’s iconic colors.

“For most of us, our first experiences with color have been with Crayola,” says David Blumenthal, President & CEO of Lion Brand. “The iconic green and yellow box is imbedded in our childhood memories.
