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.
