I've seen it at JoAnn's. The quilt shop I visit has it in King Tut.

Superior and Sulky both sell beautiful varigated threads. I love them when I want my quilting to show in patterns. I just finished a panel and FMQ a floral motif in each square using gold varigated thread, turned out great.

I still have some of Connecting Thread's variegated thread. Wish they'd come back with it again as I'm afraid to use it on a quilt and not have enough to finish it. Only use it for custom quilting when I need only a little. They seem to keep changing their colors as I notice in my stock pile having only 1 spool of a certain color. When I knew I would need more of one of those colors, I went online requesting for anyone having a spool of that particular color if they were willing to part with it for a price. I eventually acquired 4 spools of the color only to find out later that CT had some in the warehouse but just didn't have it online to sale. It came up on one of their many thread sales though. I paid $5/spool plus shipping as I wanted this color badly. Just my luck but now I have plenty to finish the project.

I love to piece with it especially the natural color. I am told YLI will soon have a variageted in light to med grey.

I also use it in the bobbin for crib quilts. Gives a bit of jazz to the solid backs.
