Have you ever wondered what colour ‘Ionian Green’ is? What about ‘Thrift’ or ‘Larkspur’?
Here’s a colour card from 1938 – ‘the Latest Shades for Bathing Costumes & Sports Wear’ that I couldnt wait to share with you!
Its a lovely look at what colours were popular (in the UK) during the late thirties – I hope they prove useful to anyone trying to reproduce their own vintage knits.
(I’m going to use it to match the colours from my modern shade cards to the vintage equivalents).
