When I was younger, Art Quilter Rosalie Dace would come teach in Sisters, Oregon where I grew up. My mother used to invite her over for dinner and she would tell us about South Africa where she lives as well as stories from her travels around the world. Once, she told me that neon orange, or hunter orange, is a neutral. I simply refused to believe her until she took a skein of bright, hot, neon orange mohair yarn and held it next to what seemed like 1,000 colors. Every time, I was amazed that the orange went with whatever other color. So this is my neutral orange, however outrageous that may seem. Thank you for this lesson Rosalie.
