All of mine was blue, on the one spool.

If they are of the same thickness, roughly, it does not matter. Perhaps you got a tail end of blue, and then they only had black. If one is thicker, then that could be for the standing rigging (to mast).

Just so that you don't get odd/patchwork standing rigging, the measurements needed for each piece of standing (to mast) and running (for sail control) rigging is given. Add them all up, for both, and then check the lengths of the line that was provided.

If you are new to it all
standing rigging  holds the mast up
running rigging are the control lines
that move the sails
