DMC Embroidery Floss (article 117) is a brilliant six strand, divisible thread made of double mercerized long staple cotton fibers.
DMC offers over 450 colors of Embroidery Floss between their solid and variegated colors.
The manufacturer does not name their Embroidery Floss colors. They use only numbers to identify them. Over time Designers using their products have labeled the colors with names though. I am using these names here for description purposes only. These names are not official names given by the manufacturer and will not show up on your invoice or product label. They are listed here only for descriptive purposes to assist you in selecting colors.
Abbreviations used: DK = Dark; Lt = Light; Med = Medium; U = Ultra; V = Very
