Thread colours

The following table lists the colours of DMC six-strand embroidery floss contained in the craft supply library in my office. It is not intended to be a complete list of available DMC colours; for that, you’ll want the DMC catalogue instead.

All colour values are approximate and derived by just kind of eyeballing them. For a second opinion, try this DMC colour chart. This this RGB-to-DMC colour converter may also be useful.
