Looking for ~older~ GAST floss ~ Gingersnap #7034

Hi sweet friends ~ hope everyone is getting in some stitchin this weekend:) 

I posted this over at the 123 board with hopes of a reply or two.

While visiting our LNS yesterday, I discovered the dye lot for one of my favorite go-to flosses has changed ~ well pooh, don't ya hate when that happens!

The ~older~ GAST Simply Shaker ~Gingersnap~ has a definite reddish/rosey cast to it, not the copper-brown shade currently on the shelf.

I'd appreciate trading/purchasing a few ~older~ skeins if anyone wants to de-stash theirs.

I've a nice selection of overdyed flosses to offer in trade.

Maybe I should also post this over at Never Enough Stash, plz wish me luck on my search!

  2. Sure hope you can find some, Sue--I just bought a skein myself last month so I know it's not the older stuff... I'll bet someone will come through for you :)

  3. Mine is orangey. I have several GASTs that are no where near each other. I have a red that shades to pink in one skein and lavender/purple in the other!

  4. Me too Marly, I also have several that are no where near the same shade as the other. I just don't get it... if a formula is used, why the variation? Can anyone with knowledge on this topic chime in?

  5. Sorry I can't help you with this but I know others will come through for you.
    That is one thing that really ruffles my feathers: when the same color doesn't "match" the one I bought a few weeks ago! That's why I always buy a bunch extra when I'm kitting something up.

  6. Good luck finding what you need. I just looked at my thread, and both skeins of Gingersnap appear to be the new copper color.
