Looks like many people who purchased this when the colours were alphabetical found it unhelpful. What about sending them a free replacement? It would be a very nice gesture and I am sure you would win customer loyalty that way. They must have been disappointed to pay $25 for a colourcard that wasn't much use.

They seem to have listened to comments. The yarns are now sorted by color family. I bought this mainly to be able to check yarn color combinations without making the mistakes I had in the past relianing on the monitor. I just wish they had other yarn cards available because not all the colors for other lines are present on this card. It does more or less work for my needs.

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!
