The screen colour sample photo and actual yarn colour can vary. The photos are best used as a guide only. Sometimes a colour may not come out right - make sure to double check that the amounts were measured correctly. I recommend making small samples before dyeing 100g or more of yarn.

♥ My name is Lori and as a graphic designer turned fibre artist, with background in colour theory, I have always loved colour and absolutely love mixing dyes. This colour collection was meticulously hand picked, adjusted and then tested on 1g of natural ecru wool yarn. You can experiment by over dyeing white, grey and other shades of natural yarn. Colours appear different on different fibre types. For example, I have found the colours to appear more vibrant on bright white Mohair yarn, deeper on Merino 4ply and less vibrant on uncombed wool roving.

Themed palettes are different than colour books. How I make them is I take the closest colour from across my colour book collections and I adjust and test until it matches up with my digital ai photo palette… there is the odd colour that is very close and the odd colour that might be the some neutrals and blacks. It takes me about 24hours to complete a set of five, organise and layout them out into a PDF for quick and easy fibre dyeing!
