In white with dark green flecks?...I remember being so chuffed when I got my first all red rope - Edelrid I think.

I seem to recall that edelrid were more or less the only game in town at first - indeed I remember the white with green flecks ropes. My first kernmantle ropes were all white - I dyed them a pale pink and pale green using some dye that you were supposed to boil with the fabric. At room temperature, a pale colour was all you got - these ones: http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=241896

Edelrid invented the kernmantle rope.
