I am doing a face in Cross stitch, on the machine and cant get the colours
quite right. Does anyone know of any skin tone selections? And any hair
colour ideas?

Re: skin tones threads in U.K.?
Depending on how much you need, you could use regular sewing thread for
those colors, as it is easier to find.  Look here for a listing of some
skin/hair colors in Madeira thread (save the names/color numbers to order
them where ever you can)

Thank you Sew Sew Lady,

I'll give that a try - I've also discovered that I can reduce the thread
count so the colours come up more faint,
