I just ordered 5 spool of threads. I chose fawn, clover green, taupe, corn silk and carmel. All but the clover green are in the beige/tan family. The spools are double mercerized cotton, 1200 yds per spool, 50/3 and $2.49 each.

I got my order today I placed on Black Friday. I ordered Fawn, Corn Silk, Taupe, Carmel and Clover Green. All but the Corn Silk are much darker than expected.

If anyone decides to buy CT thread, look at the outside of the spools online and not in the center where is it much lighter. The colors are much truer to the right side of the online sample. If I had done this, I would have order lighter colors. Still, I now have a good color sampling of medium browns and one light brown. I was hoping for beiges...

I have not tried the thread yet, but many on PR love the thread and that makes me happy to have it. I will enjoy using it. 1200mm vs the 250mm spools for nearly the same price.

I love the colors of CT thread, and it is very nice to sew with, in my opinion. I might mention that if you don't have a perfect match between thread and fabric it is better to use a darker color of thread, so you may end up being very pleased with the ones which came.

YAY! Got my order the flannel should make nice backing fabric and the price was great. I think the custard thread is pretty good color for piecing too
