Pictures are as accurate as possible of the colors. Monitors/Mobile can make the colors appear differently.
Floss will be slightly lighter than the skein when stitching unless you use all 6 strands.
I use procion fiber reactive dye, which is a permanent and colorfast dye. I soak and rinse my thread twice and then wash with a commercial detergent. Most thread should be colorfast.
Please keep in mind that very dark colors may have residual dye left after washing. To check the colorfastness, please soak a small piece in cool water and your soap preference (I recommend either dawn or orvus ) before stitching if you're worried. I have no control over which soaps are used so colorfastness is not guaranteed.
