Like some people here I bought these to make friendship bracelets (my current stash of threads are running out and I want to find better value ones). The delivery was within the estimated dates so no problem at all.
After unpacking I've noticed a few facts: these threads are made in china with Chinese label on them, which I have no issue with. I've counted the amount and it was exactly 100 skeins, no more no less. I've then lined them up on a flat surface and sorted through the colours, there are 44 unique colours in total, of which a minimal of 2 skeins each colour, with some colours duplicated (2 white & 2 black). The threads themselves feel good, they seem a bit stronger than my previous threads, which were the super soft kind. I think these would be better for friendship bracelet making than the much softer threads as they'll hold knots and shape better. Although it wasn't 100 different colours I'm generally quite happy with the colour selection in this pack: there are mostly bright colours and just about covered all the basic colours and shades. Maybe it was luck of the draw, as it really depends on the person packing your order that decides what colours to include.
Overall I think this is very good value for money. It's not the top quality threads if that's what you're looking for, they're perfectly fine for me and the colours are pretty vibrant. I've taken a couple pictures of my pack and included below if anyone wants to have a look. (Apologies for the picture quality as I used my phone to take these photos)
