Have you ever heard of “muddy colors”? After weaving for awhile you will either experience it yourself or hear of someone else kibbitzing over this specific situation. When you combine colors together in a project, but they don’t look clear, you have muddy colors.

Ultimately, the muddy color problem is a contrast problem – meaning your colors are too close together on a grayscale so the eye has trouble distinguishing between them. But I have a few ideas on how to identify and remedy the problem! Please enjoy episode 153, “Muddy Colors”.

Show Notes –

More about muddy colors – Of course when talking about color in weaving I had to refer to Tien Chiu, self-proclaimed “Color Ninja”! She does a fantastic job of diving deep into the science of color and explaining the nitty-gritty details that any technical weaver will love! So, if you want to know more about the specifics of color, I have just the place for you to start. Click here to zip over to Tien’s website that’s loaded with color goodies! 

Pinwheels – In today’s episode, I use a pinwheel towel as the example. Pinwheel is a great pattern that’s easy to execute for beginners. If you would like to learn more about pinwheels, check out episode 139, “Playing with Pinwheels”.
