All About Wool Skein SW 6148
I get asked a lot about Wool Skein, especially when I have readers who are looking for the PERFECT, soft, warm neutral. And this IS…a soft warm neutral, however, there are a few important things you need to know before bustin’ out the paint brush…
What kind of colour is Wool Skein?
What are the undertones of Wool Skein?
Now, if you’d been planning on painting your walls in Wool Skein, THIS is where you might change your mind. Wool Skein is ‘generally speaking’, a beige that leans just slightly into yellow – sounds good, right? Sure, until you realize there’s also a weeee willy wink o’ green in there.
That’s right – green. It’s not a green that’s obvious or even NOTICEABLE – on some walls. However, for those of you that are a bit more colour-sensitive, you might find that that sneaky undertone isn’t what you are looking for in your perfect warm neutral.
What is the LRV of Wool Skein?
Wool Skein comes in at an AWESOME 63 – just one smidge off of my best LRV for any room. So, at 63, it isn’t necessarily going to lighten and brighten a dark space, but it also won’t weigh it down too much as long as you have adequate interior lighting.
If you have an OVERLY bright wall/room, it will wash-out just slightly, but only when the sun is directly on it (as shown on the upper walls in the above photo).

What is the best trim colour for Wool Skein?
Wool Skein is relatively flexible, as long as it’s a warm, soft white. In the home shown below, we chose Cloud White, darkened by 25%. We did this same colour on the kitchen cabinets as well (mad love).
So, now that you know ALL ABOUT Wool Skein, are you still excited to use it? If not, I’ve got a few more for you to check out!
