5.0 out of 5 stars Fifty Shades of Great
This product arrived promptly and well-packaged. Each colour is different and I'm very pleased with the ones provided. Black and white were included, which is great as I thought they might not be.
I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone wanting to try out embroidery like me!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Anchor Thread - the brand!
I purchased this item as the picture showed that it was the brand of embroidery floss 'Anchor'. When the product arrived, I started to organise the threads into my Anchor thread organiser. I started to realise none of the threads had the brand on them and the numbers do not match up with the organiser. My thoughts were confirmed when I came across thread number 300...a...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Anchor Thread - the brand!, 26 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anchor Cotton Stranded Thread skeins. Pack of 50.
I purchased this item as the picture showed that it was the brand of embroidery floss 'Anchor'. When the product arrived, I started to organise the threads into my Anchor thread organiser. I started to realise none of the threads had the brand on them and the numbers do not match up with the organiser. My thoughts were confirmed when I came across thread number 300...a shade I already have. Official Anchor thread 300 is yellow. The one I received is brown. I'm very dissatisfied!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good selection and value, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anchor Cotton Stranded Thread skeins. Pack of 50.
Goods arrived well within delivery dates. 50 skeins, all different colours. Not sure if they are Anchor as advertised, despite being badged because some of the numbers don't match Anchor threads from other suppliers. However, threads seem to be reasonable quality and good value for money, working out at about 25% of High Street retail cost. Ideal for cross stitch projects, if you aren't needing specific colours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anchor Cotton selection, 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anchor Cotton Stranded Thread skeins. Pack of 50.
This is very good value as these skeins cost 99p each in my local department store. It is a good selection of colours and I am enjoying making embroidered cards with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job!, 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anchor Cotton Stranded Thread skeins. Pack of 50.
My granddaughter has recently started cross-stitching. It's something I enjoyed when younger so thought I'd order a supply for each of us and ordered two! Took some time to arrive but really pleased with the product now it has. Would recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars anchor or not, 3 May 2014
By 
G. Andrews "Nibs" (West of UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Anchor Cotton Stranded Thread skeins. Pack of 50.
Reading the reviews here and elsewhere more than 1 person has compaired these threads with original anchor threads according to anchor number system and found 'wrong colours'.
What ever the reason these threads will prob be ok as friendship bands and other sewing stuff etc but It sounds like people are recommending that they not be used for cross stitch kits as the colours are likely to be wrong shades.
