How do I find the color/number on my J&P Coats

Hello! I recently inherited a large lot of J&P Coats embroidery flosses, and on the labels there seems to only be one number (CA00015) on all of them, no matter the color. There is no bar code on the labels, nor is there any other number or color. I'm new to the embroidery game but on my few packs of DMC, I see bar codes and numbers--but nothing on my J&P Coats. I'm so perplexed! Can anyone help me with this? Because at this point, if I run out of a color I feel like my only option is to take a piece to the hobby store and try to visually match them? Why isn't there a scan code or name/number on these? I was unwrapping them and putting them on cards and going to write their corresponding color #s on them to organize them in a storage container but I am completely stumped. Can anyone help?

    I would suggest you buy a DMC color card with the actual samples to match up this floss. I've heard you can buy this card on DMC's website and may not be available through a local retailer. This card has come in handy for me over the years.

    There are 2 black bands on a skein of floss. One band has CA00015; the other band should have a COL number. Go to top
