Nice offer John, but I have a large bag full of the stuff, my wife brings it home for me.
I've only once been lucky enough to find some 477 amongst it, but I have a card full of a very near colour.

33, 454, 453, and 53 are reasonable close to 477

Bit of parallel thinking, what or who did Chadwicks make 477 for?, not just for killer bugs, maybe some product out there with a thousand yards of the stuff somewhere out there.

You may well have to do a search on a few knitting forums to find an answer to that.

You're dead right, but I wouldn't mind finding a dozen full cards of it.
