Yes, or buy a kingsize (850-yard spool) instead. There is no noticeable change in the dyelots within a year or two (maybe more) with rayon threads, but you can't know for sure how long a spool has been in a store or how often they rotate their stock. Since we sell to distributors who then sell to retail sources, this becomes even more exaggerated.
Better safe than sorry, though, if you're doing a big project.
