The colors in the variegated pattern are randomly distributed. It is very difficult to find a pattern of colors in the stitches which makes it the best variegated thread ever! Each color in these hand-dyed threads is influenced by, and named after, a different painter.
Dye lots will vary. One skein of this size 8 pearl cotton has approximately 32.5 yards of thread. I use this thread on both wool and cotton.
