The Tubular Spectrum is a set of 20 yarns in a spectrum of colors based on Munsell's color system.  Munsell was an American painter, and in 1905 he published a color system that uses 5 colors as the primary colors: Red, Yellow, Blue, Green and Purple.  By using his color system, we developed
the Tubular Spectrum.
