PLA Filament Rainbow Fun Pack, faberdashery, £22

Plastic for fused-filament printers is usually sold in big rolls, which is good for economy but kind of a drag if you like to print in multiple colors, as building up a full “palette” of 1kg spools can get pretty expensive, pretty fast. So the clever folks at UK’s faberdashery have thoughtfully put together this rainbow filament starter pack that includes 10m each of 10 different colors of PLA filament in either 1.5 or 3mm diameter. Their marketeers are doing a good job naming the colors, too. There’s Fire Truck Red, Squeezed Orange, Mellow Yellow, Village Green, Greenery Green, Electric Blue, Glacial Blue, Princely Purple, Cherry Blossom Pink, and Buttercream, which I, personally, have found to be the best-tasting of the lot.
