Floss Colors

DMC Floss Color Chart

This page will give you a color picture of the DMC floss colors arranged in color families (not by color number). The picture comes from a DMC thread color book.  Although not exact, the colors are fairly accurate. Remember that the colors you will see depend greatly on the quality and calibration of your computer screen. The picture is made up of high resolution scans that have been converted in PhotoShop to a lower resolution .jpg file. The picture does not include the 27 new colors added early 2002.

This color chart is handy if you want to change colors in a chart. For example, say you want to change part of a design from red to blue. The red in the design has shadowing (red with 2 shades of darker red to create the shadow or texture). An easy way to convert to blues would be to pick all the shades of blue from the same family.

Here is the DMC color chart (about 500 Kb). To find a particular color number in the color chart you will also need the color table. The table gives the column that you will find the color number. You can save the color chart and table to you computer by clicking on its picture with the right mouse button (Windows users).

Here is the same DMC color chart divided into smaller pieces
