Many of us were shocked when we learned a few years back that the yarn known as Medicis wool would no longer be sold by DMC. As supplies dwindled and color after color sold out, people wondered what they would use in its place. More than one company has come along offering yarn that they suggest we use instead of Medicis, but none of it is yarn that duplicates the color range of Medicis.
We are pleased to announce that the yarn formerly known as Medicis is still available from us. Here are some important details:
1) This yarn comes from the same source and is spun at the same spinning mill that DMC used. It is also being dyed with the same dyes and formulas that were used by DMC.
2) It is being produced in nearly the same color range as when it came from DMC, with a few minor changes.
3) Color numbers are the same.
4) COLOR CARDS ARE NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. Due to color inaccuracies, we are also unable to have accurate color scans of the yarn on the internet. If you are familiar with the old colors or are lucky enough to have an old color card, you may order using the same color numbers as before.
5) Yardage of skeins is the same as before, 25 meters (approximately 27 yards). Skeins now consist of pre-cut lengths rather than one continuous 25 meter length. Each skein when opened up consists of five very long strands (a little over five yards each).
6) It is no longer available in hanks.
7) Six old colors are discontinued. Although we still have inventory of a few of these colors, when they are gone they will no longer be dyed. Thirteen NEW colors have been added to the line.
Here is a list of all Medicis colors, with both discontinued and new colors indicated:
