Don't be so sure that the lot won't match. I've found that there is only a difference in dye lots for the smaller mills and the less 'manufactured' yarns.
Yarns that are massed produced, like Encore, for example, have different numbers on them, but there wouldn't be a difference in the color that you could notice.
