Embroidery Thread & Conversion Chart

Use the embroidery color chart below to convert this palette between three types of thread.

To give you the most accurate representation of every shade, the thread images used on this page are sourced from the official websites of their respective floss manufacturers.

For more information about their threads and available colors, please visit their website at DMC or Anchor Crafts

Please note that a perfect conversion is not always possible due to the limited colors provided by manufacturers. You can see my suggestions below for the closest representation of the palette across different brands, but feel free to adapt these shades to suit your project.


Hex, RGB and CMYK Color Details

Use the chart below to copy color codes for your specific needs.

If your design project is ultimately going to be displayed on a digital screen, use the HEX or RGB values from the chart below. This applies for a wide variety of modern devices such as smartphones, tablets, computers or even TVs.

Use the CMYK color codes for your design if that will be physically printed on paper. The CMYK color mode will give you more accurate results, as most commercial printers are configured to use these values for the printing process.

    What Would You Make With This?

    Very much like beauty, color also is in the eye of the beholder. A lively shade of cobalt blue that evokes a certain reaction in one person, may evoke quite the opposite in another.

    What's your take on this palette? If you had all the colors in your stash for this palette, what would you make with it?
