The choice is an interesting one because this is the first time Pantone has chosen 2 shades as the color of the year. Here is a description of Pantone of these shades:
"Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace."
Very zen-like, huh? It'll be interesting to see how these shades will translate to design and how they will look like paired with other colors.
If you're interested to have these shades for your yarn, Gantsilyo Guru Selections has some that come quite close to Rose Quartz and Serenity:
Dapper Dreamer Bamboo Cotton Powder Pink & Powder Blue or Arctic Blue (Available Soon!)
