The thread labelled and sold as "nutmeg" was sold as "walnut" from summer 2018 until spring 2019.

More info about this thread:
-----------------------------------------------
This thread is a NeL 18/4 thread. This means it is spun from 4 fine strings of yarn, (also referred to as “ply” in the title), the 18 before the slash denotes the thickness of the individual string of yarn.

Waxed linen thread is highly valued because it is a durable, strong and versatile stringing material that works great for knotting and braiding, and is thus used for a wide variety of traditional and modern crafts. Among them bookbinding, basket weaving and macrame, for leather works, for making jewellery, and many more.

This is a heavily waxed thread. This means the fibres are embedded in wax which protects the colours and renders the thread less susceptible to moisture which is important for sewing sails or other outdoor equipment. The wax also lets the thread hold a given shape more easily and renders it slightly sticky, which has the advantage that knots and slings will hold more reliably. However, depending on the intended use it is advisable to run the thread between your fingers several times to brush off excess wax before using it.

Please Also Note:
------------------
Colours viewed on a screen look different than the real thing

Furthermore the exact colour varies substantially from dye lot to dye lot. Therefore thread bought under the same name at different times may look different. Better order enough thread to last through your whole project.
