Uni 2005 Colours and what they match

I was at the store on Wednesday night and instead of doing things I should have been doing I decided to colour match the new 2005 Uni to other sock yarns. I get a lot of requests for which colours match when people are buying yarn for the Bees Knees patterns. Buying yarn over the internet is hard when you can't actually hold the yarn and compare colours for yourself. These colour matches are just my opinion but I do have a good eye for colour. I have also put and * beside the colour matchI like the best.

I have missed the medium brown and will update later when I get time.
I hope this helps with the colour selections. It was fun to do. If I get time on Saturday I will colour match the older Uni colours too. I will put this info on my web site if it ever gets back to normal.

That's a reall great list, Shelley. Thanks for putting that together. I'm sure it will come in handy for me at some point. Have a great Saturday.

Shelley, what new Opal Uni do you think would look good with Opal Tiger? Specifically I was wondering about 60, 61, 62 or 63. On my monitor 63 looks like a good combination with the Tiger. Thanks!
