harley davidson orange
Posted 14 October 2009 - 03:48 PM
If anyone is familiar with Harley Davidson colors and know what shade would match best in Red Heart or any other yarn I can order online, I'd appreciate it. The squares are already made. The orange is for a jayg and it needs to be done for Christmas.
I hesitate to just order the yarn because I really have no use for the 7 skeins of orange yarn I now have.
Thanks for any suggestions.

To me the RH is super bright and the Bernat is a deeper orange.
PM if you would like my help or if you need additional information.

Anyway, she decided on the Bernat Super Value Carrot. Tangerine and Deep Orange were also very close.
The thing with yarn is that it is not the "same" color throughout. There are variations in shade, even in a solid color yarn, when you put them in a photo program.
Here is a sample of what I did if I can remember how to do photos.
Okay, that didn't work, but there is the picture all the same. You just have to click on the link. If I can figure it out, I'll edit the post again.

The best thing that you can do is to take something Harley with you and go to a yarn store.
My hubby is a Harley freak. Red Heart puts out a Halloween orange but it's next to impossible to find during the year. That's why I went with the Caron Pounder - it's always available.
It's the best orange for Florida Gator (I live in gator country) stuff too. And the Royal Blue from Red Heart. Which is an awful combination because the orange is thick and the blue is thin.
Good luck with it and let us know which one you choose.

Thanks for all your help ladies. I'd have never found these yarns without you.
