      So what’s the story behind Rubbed Chocolate versions 1 & 2? 🤓

      @sims, back in the summer of 2013, I had floated the idea of extending the Rubbed color line to Vikki because it was such a lovely concept, and the colors were just so scrumptious. So we started playing: we would pick a name, choose the components, Vikki would dye it in SSF, and if she was satisfied that the resulting color fitted her criterion for Rubbed, it became part of the line. For Chocolate Brown, we tried two versions, and she was happy with both. We couldn’t decide which one to toss out, so they became versions 1 and 2.

      We were crazed that summer. When the dye pots had settled, we had a total of 60 colors in the Rubbed line – not including 4 “failed” colors, which were quite exquisite, never mind that they failed the Rubbed test.

      Veena (is ready for Sim’s next question – lol)

      Failed Rubbed Orange is one of my favorite colors. I regret only purchasing one.

      looking forward to Floss of the Month!
      I had asked Vikki if she would consider doing a set of Reds, Blues, Pinks, etc. If we could order 5 spools or 10 spools of 1 color family but different. Similar to the Quaker piece that was recently posted on FB. 10 reds. I am not fluent in the names, but having a set ready to go for a Quaker piece or any other monochromatic piece would be Fantastic!
      Thank you for considering.

      Rubbed black looks like another color I would just need to order extra spools of. Variegated but can be used for many projects!

      @jcash @infinite_needle I had my hubs scroll through the photos and he was like “Ooh, Rubbed Copper!” and he’s colorblind. So that says a lot. 😆
