White, Bright White, Ice White, Cool White, Warm White, Natural Light and now ... Antique White
White LEDs come in different colour temperatures measured in Kelvin. Daylight is around 6000K, Traditional light bulbs around 2400K. It basically means how 'warm' or yellow the light is, with the lower number being warmer. Christmas light manufacturers don't quote Kelvin numbers though, instead they're categorised into:
- WHITE - the same as Bright White, Ice White, Cool White, Bright White - these are the colour of the original white LEDs. A crisp, verging on blue, light
- WARM WHITE - also known as Natural White - some people didn't like the Bright White LEDs being a totally different colour to traditional filament fairy lights, so Warm White came along. How 'Warm' they are can vary a lot
- ANTIQUE WHITE: these are Really Warm Warm White! Similar to the white you get in retro vintage filament bulbs. They border on Amber and are the new white for 2016!
We think it will be a hit. Amber has always been a popular colour and for adding warmth to your tree, Antique White could be just the thing!
