Have you ever looked at a colour and thought about how it makes you feel? I have. Here at Wool Couture we constantly look at colours for our products and plan our photoshoots around how the colours feel. We think this shows off our products in the best way so you can be inspired and craft your next project with us.
The Wool Couture flock all have our favourite colours. We also favour certain colours depending what the item it is we want to knit or crochet. For example your house. What colour is your bathroom? Your kitchen? How about where you relax? What colour you choose, for what you do in a room, can say a lot about your personality and you as a person.
The same for the colour of yarn you choose for your project. Which colour have you already used for your project? Which colour are you thinking for your next project.
Here at wool couture we believe that knitting, crocheting and weaving can benefit our mental health. Picking up your needles at the end of a stressful day can relax us. I love the thought of colours also helping us to relax. As well, in the workplace we want colours that stimulate us either mentally or physically.
Other examples, have you ever noticed that restaurants will use orange to make you hungry, brands will use purple to make you think they are luxury and work offices will use blue to encourage you to concentrate better.
