I bought this thread on an afternoon field trip two weeks ago and couldn't wait to use it. The yellows range from a light butter yellow to a deep daffodil shade. It is so lovely and versatile. I used it for the birthday bag tote for Charlie but I am already envisioning so many other possibilities besides embroidery. There were several different shades to choose from so I am pretty sure I will be going back for more. Soon. Real soon.
