I was hoping to get something similar to the one pictured. I have a 100ft hank of it and it's a gorgeous array of colors. Regarding the spool I received, P2 has another photo of Rainbow which is truer than what is advertised. It's much more blue forward. However, as they say, pictures don't do it justice. It's a beautiful, blue-forward rainbow 550. Keep in mind, Rainbow and Random will be different almost all the time. Best to talk with P2!
