I know it can be purchased online from the manufacturer, but I would like to look at the colors in person before making a purchase online (and paying shipping!), There are limited choices at Wal-Mart stores but not what I am looking for. I really want to see some of the ombres before I buy, but I cant seem to find them. Is there any other B&M store that sells these?

Thanks for answering,
I have never seen it at HL or Michaels, only sugar & cream, which until I started looking for certain colors I thought was the same thing!

I never really paid attention before, never noticed there was a difference between peaches and sugar.  I'll have to go check it out so I know what the difference is.

Your right it is Sugar and Cream at Michael's. My DH is a Peaches and Creme snob and he snags that up at HL. I love them both and use both.

Sugar 'n Cream is available in more colors, but up close it has a more "lint-y" look than the Peaches and Creme. Still, I've used both with pleasure. I've also used Lion Cotton, and I think they all have more in common than not.

Several years ago I wondered if the Peaches & Creme was the Wal-mart version of Sugar'n Cream--a kind of store brand--so I looked it up. Turns out they're made by different companies, the Sugar by Lily and the Peaches by Elmore-Pisgah.
