Shades of Black


My wife bought a pack of 3 pairs of black socks today for my elder daughter. When she got them out, it was actually a pack of 6 individual socks with RGB values close to #000 yet not actually there. No two were the same shade. Indeed, one started off black at the top but faded to a bluey charcoal colour by the toe. All six were the same style, just not the same black.

Maybe we should get another pack of 6, to increase the odds of getting two that match.
