In the Buff

Today I learned something.

Whenever the question of skin colored yarn comes up, I think of Red Heart Super Saver in buff.

buff

I always assumed it was named as a joking reference to the phrase “in the buff”. Well, maybe it is, or maybe it’s just named that because buff is actually a color! And the phrase “in the buff”, which originally meant wearing a buff-colored suit – is about (some) skin being buff colored!

So buff yarn, is the color buff. Lol. I just find it amusing that I’ve never heard of a color referred to as buff… and that I never really thought about what “buff” was in the phrase “in the buff”. But TIL!
