I understand this isn't probably going to get hot but checked two stores today the shop assistant said they're discontinueing the colour so selling them off to make room for the new ones (though not sure if this is true or not.) So it could possibly be nationwide.

They had hundreds of 10Litre tubs of Calico and Hessian which were in the clearance section. They usually retail at £30-£40, and the 2.5litres are £16! It was down to £20 which is a bargain alone, but due to the 20% off dulux paint currently on at the moment it came to £16! I

The stores in mention were Manchester Fort, and Stretford. Although manchester fort had a lot more. Not entirely sure if this is nation wide but if your on your way there its worth a look.

My living rooms already in this colour so thought it was a bit of a godsend that they were both on offer when I was looking to repaint!

Sorry if this isn't nationwide but thought id post it just in case it was, the assistant didn't know but from what he said it seems that it might be. Even if its not, there might be someone near the said stores who might be interested.

Natural Calico the new Magnolia. :-D

As much as I hate magnolia and as much as calico is similar to magnolia it looks a lot nicer! lol I have mine with brown/duck egg it looks quite nice.

Hot from me, I also have both of these colours!

Thanks! , will try for some calico spares!

Just to verify, I purchased the Hessian in the Hedge-End store yesterday, which they have stacks of them. Strangly enough they actually rang through the till @ £15.90

Is this the Natural Hessian? I want it in silk!!!
I only thought it came in 2.5 and 5 litres?

we painted most of our downstairs in natural calico too ;-) maybe good to pick up a pot for touchups, thanks

This is Natural Hessian, but only in rich matt.

Didn't notice any Calico, the Hessian was on the base shelf @ the end of the paint isle, next to the paint desk, priced at £20, though obviously scans less. Loads there.

It's only in Matt for the 10L size

Sorry just looked at my receipt mine also came through at £15.90. Not sure why though, possibly VAT or something? An yeah it's natural hessian and natural calico sorry for not mentioning that! I didn't realise there were other versions =]

Anyone know how long this stuff lasts in the tin if I get some but don't need to use it immediately?

Should be ok for 4-5 years when stored correctly away from extreme cold / heat. Give it a damn good stir when opened to rid of any formed sediment, which shouldn't occur if lid is airtight.

I have tried Trowbridge and Yeading, and neither have any, so I think some people have struck lucky!

Thanks. Advice appreciated, rep left!

Was plenty in my local store (Solihull) last week. Fingers crossed there is some left.

Please don't discontinue Calico , we have it in lots of our rooms.

Nothing like Magnolia in our house, I always think Magnolia looks peachy, Calico is more of a stone colour.

I don't see why they would discontinue a colour if so many people use it, maybe they're changing it slightly or something, he didn't really seem to know what he was talking about! lol

I was wondering whilst walking down the paint isle why some Dulux Trade 5L tins were £50!? Anyone know why?

many thanks to the OP for this offer.

None left in Solihull or Castle Bromwich.
