If you enjoy stranded color work, this is a valuable tool and well worth the price. Contrary to other reviews here, I have not found color cards available for free that offer such a large selection. Jamieson & Smith charges for their 2 ply jumper weight card (over 10 pounds sterling), another yarn traditionally used for fair isle. This is simply an indispensable tool if you design or need to substitute shades in fair isle designs. Nothing replaces swatching, of course, but this can certainly help you narrow choices.

So... when yarn companies are promoting their product, they give sample cards away for free to potential customers, but KP expects people to pay for them? Hm. Red flag there. Also, as others have pointed out, colors should be arranged by color and not by name, for easier comparison.

As another reviewer noted, the color card is sorted by color name rather than by color. This makes the color card very difficult to use for selecting colors as it is impossible to compare tones and hues. KnitPicks - please, please fix this!

I agree with Valerie. Am slowly making up my own color cards according to color family. More helpful to have the lovely subtle color ranges grouped together...matching how I store the colors in my weaving studio.

Wonderful product. All 150 shades neatly arranged alphabetically. Extremely helpful. I am a big fun of this yarn and I wish I had it earlier.... computer display the colors wrong :)

The colors are arranged by name alphabetically. This makes it difficult to look for, say, a red. The catalog arrangement is much better for practical use. Also the arrangement of the card makes all the colors look ugly or muddy because they are almost always next to something you wouldn't chose to put together. Disappointing. I can't do anything about the arrangement, but maybe when I have a slow day I will cut the card up and put it un catalog or color wheel sequence. And I am going to cut each panel into separate sheets because the full card now makes it hard to put one color next to another. But at least we now have access to the real colors; computer screen reproduction is never adequate. Now we Ned color card for Stroll and Brava yarn.
