How Do You Picture Gold?


When you think of Gold, do you picture something more yellow or something more brown? I'm just curious. I'd like to settle on a nice gold Firestar to keep as a mainstay in the shop. These are the two golds I dyed this morning. I guess I personally see the color on the right as a more true gold, but I like the other color too. Maybe I just offer them both, but then what do I name them? Light Gold, Dark Gold? Yellow Gold, True Gold?

As always, I love your feedback! Which gold do you like best?

I definitely feel like the one on the right is more of the "true gold", but I do think that the one on the left is something that many people look for when trying to design/create. I do website design and people always associate the color on the left more with gold. So maybe it would be beneficial to keep both for a while? Maybe the one on the right as "antique gold" or something like that?

Thanks April! I think you're right and I like the sound of Antique Gold. Awesome suggestion!

I like them both too, they would serve 2 different purposes depending on what hind of yarn you were making!

And I was going to say antique gold too lol

you could call the other Goldilocks, i think that would be cute!

I agree that the one on the right is more of a true gold - but I bet you'll get a lot of people who expect the brighter color when they think of gold...
