Colour Wheels Part 2

It turns out that there’s no such thing as too much colour.

I should have known that really.

When our original colour wheels debuted at Yarndale a couple of weeks ago they were hugely popular and sold out.

So job number one was to get them restocked.

Our original colour wheels were based round the primary colours – red, blue and yellow.

We’ve also been dyeing up colour wheels based on printer ink colours – magenta (pink), cyan (turquoise) and yellow again.

Which version you prefer will depend on your favourite colours – so the choice is yours.

Each colour wheel comes in hues, shades, tints and tones.

Hues are the original colours.

Shades are the original colours with black added – so deeper than hues.

Tints are a paler version of hues – if I was mixing paint I’d add white, as a dyer I use less dye.

Tones are tints with a tiny amount of black added. If I was mixing paint colours I’d start with the original hues and add grey.

So lots and lots and lots of colour.

The colour wheels are dyed onto our new Britsock base, and each set gives you 12 mini skeins each approximately 10 grams / 40 meters. Each set costs £22, and they’ll be in the shop at 1900 on Friday 16th October.
