Question Trying to match a thread

I am in the middle of quilting my quilt top and I have realized that I am going to run out of thread. I have been using Sulky blendables 30 wt. #4091, but I can't find it anywhere and my quilting store is not sure when they will get another order, if they can get it. Does anyone know of another line of thread that might match up with Sulky blendables? I don't think it would even have to be an exact match but I do want variegated thread.

I had that happen with a King Tut green variegated. Luckily I had filled a couple of bobbin with it. I put a plain green in another bobbin and used the bobbins on the thread spool to finish my quilt. I had about 12 inches left by the finish. I always over buy now. Hopefully someone will know another source for your Sulky blendable.

Have you checked online? Doing a quick search I found that Fabric Depot carries Sulky Blendables and they are on sale right now.

I have checked on line but there are two problems: 1. I live in Canada and shipping for one spool of thread from one store is twice as much as the thread; 2. I cannot seem to find any other stores that carry that particular color.

I see this shop in BC carries it, I didn't look to see what their shipping charges are though. https://www.agreatnotion.com/product...productId=1646
