I've never liked orange, but have a look at this Malabrigo
worsted. It is a color I can't begin to describe except to
show you graphically (especially since they were a gift, and the tags
were not included so I can't tell you the colorway at all).
It is the color of the blood oranges on my trees, just now starting to turn darker as they ripen. Yellow, orange, tangerine, red - all at once.
After taking these pictures of the trees this morning, I saw this painting just inside my back door.
I painted it last year on a trip to Italy, and in the details I see these colors once again, deep and true.
Color you can't name because it is every shade at once...
I love orange.
