Discontinued Colors

One very frustrating thing about the dye industry is that dyes are often discontinued or reformulated. When possible, we will reformulate at this end but sometimes our efforts are unsuccessful. If that occurs the color must be discontinued; therefore the following list. We have given substitutes where we or shops have found one to be acceptable.
The upside to this situation is that the dye manufacturers and distributors often add new colors as well which is how we develop our new fabric colors.
