Colour Matching

What was wondering what brand of wool you use and which one is the best to match the colours using the stitchboard palette?  Love the site

Hi, and welcome!  Smile  Thank glad you like our site!  Smile

Actually, the Stitchboard palette is more of a modified DMC palette (e.g., cotton for counted cross stitch).  Because those colors would be next to impossible to match in wool, my suggestion would be to make any patterns for crochet or knitting with the Stitchboard Basic Palette.  It differs from the full palette in that there are a limited number of shades of each color.  Unfortunately, yarn manufacturers don't want to get stuck with a lot of inventory of colors that don't sell well, so they're unlikely to provide yarn colors in the way DMC provides floss colors (e.g., hundreds of shades) for cross stitching.  And the results likely won't look quite as nice with the Stitchboard Basic Palette, but it will be much easier to match the colors.

Hope that helps!  Smile
