I had an interesting experience buying yarn online recently. I was looking for a self-striping yarn in red and shades of gray from light to black. I found Wisdom Saki Silk and ordered it in color Big Volcano. Little did I know, it was not only self-striping but self-patterning.
This is in some ways better for the project I have in mind (which must remain top secret for now) but I could have easily seen this on the Universal Yarn website. To be fair, I was in a real hurry, but it doesn't take that long to be sure what comes is what's expected. Luckily, in this case it was a serendipitous mistake.
