Texas Longhorns thread color

Anyone out there know what thread would match the orange of the Texas Longhorns? I have the burnt orange from ProWrap but it seems to be a little more orange than needed. The ProWrap that I have is the color fast version. I am using it on a white blank. Thanks

Texas orange is Pantone 159. ProWrap is 167. Search for these and compare. They look pretty close to me, but you be the judge.

I've looked for other burnt oranges and found nothing from the usual thread makers.

Madeira Polyneon is used by many builders, so you can go to a sewing shop and see if it is available in the color you want. Other Madeira thread materials most likely will not hold color like the Polyneon (with CP).
