Dharma acid dyes - color mixing questions for the 'pros'

Hi ladies,
I'm preparing to place a Dharma order for some acid dyes to dye wool yarn (for those times when I just can't find the right color, you know?). so, I'm planning to also get their Cyan/Magenta/Yellow color wheel to go with it, but I can't figure out which colors in acid dyes would correlate to C/M/Y. I have called them and wrote it down somewhere and now can't find it, and they're closed today. Any ideas?

I was thinking: Sun Yellow, Turquoise, and then....???

Here is a linky...http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/en...lnav=dyes.html

thanks for helping!

fuschia would be closest to magenta.

I'd probably go with either Fire Red or Vermilion depending on whether you want a warm or cool red to mix with.
