It has red light blue and yellow in it. They both look really really neat done up on cards, tags or whatever and am quite sure they were less than $2 for a whole skein. It is 100% cotton and really does the job, no one would know it is NOt bakers twine.
You are just the cleverest person ever! I crochet and have bought that yarn to make dishcloths - but hadn't thought how much it resembles the Bakers Twine. Hooray for you.
I'm off to Walmart today to get some. Thank you.
