Colour & Tone Guide

Colour-Wheel-and-Tone-Guide

 

I’m told by an artist friend that this one is the best on the market.
Choose your colours with confidence!
Simply place your colour wheel on the fabric or swatch of colour you want to match with so it shows through the window.  Pick the shade which is closest to your swatch.  Point the indicator to choose your combination and pick the colours with the same shade letter.
The Tonal Estimator, which comes with the Colour Wheel, will help you evaluate the tones of your chosen fabrics or yarns.

Lazadas blocking wires

A great stocking filler, the packaging on these Lazadas blocking wires is even smaller than before – now really tiny at only 6″ x 7″ – you could almost use the package as a bookmark!!  The wires are super flexible and can be bent and shaped any way and they will straighten out afterwards.  The set contains 35″ and 70″ blocking wires and nickle-plated T-pins.
