DMC Coloris and Their Corresponding Solid Colors

What colors make up DMC Coloris embroidery floss

DMC Coloris floss is a range of variegated threads that are made up of four shades of contrasting but complimentary floss along one continuous thread. These threads provide striking color changes as you stitch, unlike the color variations range which are comprised of subtle shading changes within a color family.

Tips for Stitching

Complete the full cross of your stitches before moving on.

Colors seem to change approximately 3 inches apart, so plan ahead where you are going next, note from the stitched image below I didn’t do this at one point and have ended up with a brown line in between red areas!

Coloris threads are a fun addition to your collection and I think are especially useful if you are stitching a sampler type of design.
