The Kangaroo Dyer's Color Grid

Color theories and color wheels serve as excellent guides, but they do not work for everyone. The Colorgrid is based on sound theory, but you don't have to learn that theory; you just have to explore the tool. The simple instructions are inside. Feel free to play with the Colorgrid to discover color combinations that are guaranteed to work, and at the same time, to build your own color confidence. Use the color combinations you discover in your projects, you home, your garden - wherever color counts!

      The Color Grid is a wonderful tool for choosing (and understanding) color. Have you ever stood in front of a display of lusciously-colored yarn (or paint, or fabric) paralyzed by indecision? If so, you will love the Color Grid. Gail Callahan has used her experience as a professional dyer and her experience teaching color to create an easy-to-use, pocket-sized solution to "color paralysis". I have used it to make my color choices more efficient, but I have also used it without a specific project in mind to mess around with hypothetical color combinations. It can really open your eyes to palettes outside your color comfort zone!

      Perhaps I am just not understanding how to use this. That is so very possible. However, I have not found this product helpful. It's a bit confusing to orient the front piece, and when I get it oriented I do not often even like the suggested color combinations. If I am using it incorrectly, I apologize to the developer sincerely.

      Great little tool to have around.

      By Ann

      from Roseburg, OR

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Easy To Improvise Colors
      • Easy to use
      • Good quality paper
      • Great Colors

      Cons

      • Needs Better Sleeve
      • Needs Protective Sleeve

      Best Uses

      • Combining Colors To Spin
      • Find Best Contrast Color
      • Helps Choose Dye Color

      Comments about The Kangaroo Dyer's Color Grid:

      I am impressed with the colors and their accuracy. If I need to purchase dyes for my project, the chart helps because of the trueness of the colors. It would be good if each dye maker provided a chart that matched their colors, if it weren't for copyright infringement.

        I have already used this grid to select yarns for a recent knitting pattern. My husband is an artist and thinks it's great also as a quick guide. I highly recommend this product.

        Comments about The Kangaroo Dyer's Color Grid:

        I've been using the color grid to select yarn for knitting, but, like the description says, it'd also be useful for selecting complementary color combinations in projects, the home, the garden. I've even used it to pick color for an outfit I want to wear.

          Comments about The Kangaroo Dyer's Color Grid:

          After I got my Color Grid I ordered more for the members of my fiber guild. It is very useful for helping select a bright pop of color when you know your main project color(s).
