Why are some of these colors numbered and renamed? They are dye lot variations too far from their original colors to retain the same name. Here are the dye lot notes:
S1-Natural is a dye lot variation one tone lighter than Beige and more neutral with a tad less green in its hue. Labeled as Dark Cream by S-Lon.
S2-Linen is a dye lot variation lighter than Ash and more more neutral with a tad less green in its hue. It is low in stock as when I reordered the same color I got a different dye lot now named Sand. Both these dye lots were labeled as Light Brown by S-Lon.
S3-Maize is its own color, a beautiful light gold. If it was a dye lot variation of Gold, then only half of the dye was added to the dye bath. Labeled as Tan by S-Lon.
S4-Lt Maize is a dye lot in between Cream and Dark Cream with a barely noticeable touch of green added in the color mix. Labeled as Cream by S-Lon.
S5-Sand is a dye lot variation similar to Linen but a tad brighter with more gold and less green in its hue. Labeled as Light Brown by S-Lon.
S6-Greige is a dye lot variation close to C-Lon Bead Cord Beige, but not close to C-Lon Bead thread Size D Beige or Ash. Labeled as Ash by S-Lon.
SLD-CB CapriBlue Lighter than C-Lon Capri. In between C-Lon Bead Cord Carribean Blue and Blue Lagoon, whereas CLBD-C Capri is just a tad darker than Blue Lagoon and CLBD-RO Royal Blue is like C-Lon Bead Cord Capri.
SLD-WH White I bought S-Lon White when C-Lon Whitewas out of stock, I cannot tell the difference between the 2 brands.
