Attention all Medici lovers

Out of necessity I have done an inventory on what Medici I have left. There were 180 colors in the line and of those I have left everything with the exception of: Blanc and Noir. Pinks & Reds 8818, 816, 8817, 8127, 8126, 8221, 8101. Plums 8113, 8107, 8124. Blues 8800, 8799, 8799, 8209, 8200, navy, 8993. Greens 8426, 8871, 8369, 8413, 8414, 8415, 8346, 8404, 8405. Golden Browns 8328, 8309. Yellows 8027, 8026, 8725, 8845. Mauves 8514, 8105, 8301, 8300, 8842, 8841, 8840, 8839, 8838, 8504, 8501. Taupe & Browns 8512, 8505, 8503, 8502, 8306, 8509, 8508, 8507, 8204, 8877, 8500, Noir. Mostly what I have left are small skeins, with some half and or whole hanks. Aside from needlepoint and cross stitch its a good choice for surface embroidery, hand quilting and punch needle (using the 3 strand needle). Contact me for further info.

Honestly there are many decent substitutes but nothing quite exactly like it. The twist is tighter and finer than Appleton Crewel weight wool, slightly heavier than RG Designers Wool, slightly finer and tighter twist than Bella Lusso. Weight wise it's somewhat comparable to one strand of Gloriana Lorikeet with a little less loft. I suspect that Needle Necessities used medici as a base for their overdyed French Wool. (Not sure if Threadworx has picked up on the wool or not). Skeins remaining are 1.10 each or 10 for 10.00 or 20 for 15.00.
