Jane Rainbow crewel work

Please can anyone help me? I have a Jane Rainbow "Allium" kit which my mother started many years ago. Sadly when her house was cleared after she died, the paternayan threads appear to have be lost. The instructions which are with the started design do not list the shades which are used. There are 6 main colours with 3 shades of each according to the instructions. Does anyone know what shades are needed for the yellow/gold version of this design?
Thanks,

Hi, I'm in Canada but I have the feeling Jane Rainbow was a Cotswold person? I loved doing crewel but I rarely bothered over much about the colours, so long as they blended nicely. If there is a picture of Allium, maybe try to pick up embroidery wool as near as possible.
I don't know how it is in the UK now but over here, everything is online, we haven't had a needlework shop for about 20+ years now.
Here's a link to Paternayan colours

am sure ebay or amazon could provide them, but put in the colournumbers and with luck, something should pop up. Here's hoping :)

Thanks for your suggestions. The same is happening here in the UK as in Canada, the needlework shops are closing and I've got to choose the colours from my computer screen. Here's hoping that my choices play nicely together in the flesh.
