I've just now looked online for that brand, but alas, it doesn't appear to be easily had. Where did you find Carbon Line?
In Germany, you can buy it at Schneider Musik (schneidermusik.de). I don't know, if they ship to the States or who distributes them.
Maybe the manufacturer can help you: https://kuerschnermusiksaiten.wordpress.com/

not really unusual but definitely pushing the envelope: Daniel Mari 200 trebles. Probably the best nylon trebles out there.

as for strings with unusual colors--Hannebach flamenco (peach color) and La Bella 820 flamenco (redish purple)
be true to the one you love but have many flings with different guitars

AQUILA Alabastro ... Basses nylgut multi-filament, trebles nylgut monofilaments ... a modern take on gut strings.
I'm currently testing those - now on their third guitar. Distinct, and even across the strings. They will be added to my permanent stash.

I'm going to order a set. The Mari's, absolutely.
