When we developed the Blendables®, we used our rayon palette of 333 solid colors to engineer the combinations. Rayons and cottons dye entirely differently, so the end result is a hybrid that only comes close to the rayon colors chosen. Because the colors are dyed randomly in changing increments of 2-1/2” to 5”, the colors truly blend from one to the other (hence the name). So there are shades of all the colors that makes them blend beautifully with batiks and other fabrics. I spool some onto a fabric to see how they blend, and truly you just can’t go wrong. Looking at the colors on the spools does not tell you nearly as much as when you lay some out on the fabrics. Colors you think would never work together, just magically do. Also, the dying process for the Cotton Blendables and the Cotton Solids is completely different making it even more challenging.
However...I unspooled that color and layed it over some of the cotton solids on the Cotton/Blendables Real Thread Chart to give you at least a rough idea of what I think might work for 4039:
1191, 1176, 1561, and 1216. I've done this before for people, but this color was really challenging. I hope this helps.
