Floss colors

I guess this is more of a pet peeve than anything else. But on more than one occasion in the past couple of year I’ve purchase charts for a project that I’m really excited about doing, only to find that when I purchase the floss listed in the chart it looks waaaaay different from the picture on the chart/kit. Some of the colors are so ugly and look nothing like the representation in the picture. It is a real pain and for me it’s difficult to substitute colors as some of these charts are for large projects and it becomes a project in itself to try to get the colors more like the representation in the photo of the project. I’m just curious if it’s just me or is anyone else experiencing this?

    Can't say this has ever happened to me. However, printed and computer pictures often do vary wildly from what you actually see in real life (floss) Go to top
