In all the years (20+) that I've been working with Appleton, I've never known them to introduce any new colors, but now they have. Colors 887 and 888 (on the far right) have been added to the 'pastel shades' group.
Here's a look at the new line up - note that the colors are not exactly as they appear on your screen - they are much prettier.
I only have a single skein of each, but have ordered a quantity and hope to have them by the time the next newsletter comes out.
The first picture shows the entire line up in crewel. The second one shows just the two new colors in tapestry weight.
