Everyone loves a good collection of threads, but unless you have the whole set of DMC threads you’re going to need a way to keep track of what you have, and haven’t got. That’s why we created this awesome colored spreadsheet of all standard, metallic, variations, variegated, Coloris and Étoile 6 strand DMC threads, so you can keep track.
Just click the link or image and save the spreadsheet. You can access it on your computer, phone, or put it through googledocs!

    Thank you for this wonderful list! As someone who is trying to collect them all — would you even try to collect the ones that are astrisked?

    1. LordLibidan

      Ha! That’s up to you! I did.
      However, if you live outside of North America, some of those asterisk ones will be very hard to find!

    Hello, thanks so much for your excel list! I’m beginner-to-be in cross stitching, working out my little plan for my first “masterpiece” . Me being admin assistant started with building a system and searching for info on how to organize things , how many colors are there, what do I need, what I don’t need etc., and your blog is excellent for this. Thanks again for making your thoughts and conclusions available to ppl like me, saving my time and $! Stay safe, and happy stitching! Greetings from Canada, Oksana

    Is there a known issue with this document? I can’t access it no matter what I click…

    1. LordLibidan

      Are you using a phone? Depending on your phone’s settings, it can block excel sheets from downloading.

    Your email took up my whole afternoon tracking down what I might need to stock up on, as we are in a pandemic and I may NEED “that particular thread”.

    What I did notice was not in the spreadsheet was DMC Tropical Glow. They were sold as a set. The colors were:

    Lemon Zest E985
    Tangerine Zing E1024
    Melon Blast E995
    Raspberry Rush E1055
    Blueberry Blast E1026
    Key Lime Splash E987

    Do you know their backstory?

    1. LordLibidan

      Ha! Those threads. There are actually a bunch, I’ve added them to the sheet. We’re struggling to work out when they were made, where they were sold, or even if they’re still in production. Weirdly, despite French being on the box, they don’t appear to have been sold in France.
      Very odd threads.

      1. Laura Minnesota

        The back of the box has a New Jersey address, but says they were made in France, as one would expect. They were sold in the USA. Don’t remember when I bought it and there is no date on any of the packaging.

        1. Sarah Adams

          Could have something to do with Quebec, not France, but I have no idea.

  5. Johanna Scalzo

    I am confused. Does coloris replace the variegated ones? Will all the variegated colors disappear. There are fewer coloris numbers than variegated.

    1. LordLibidan

      No, they’re different threads. DMC will keep both.
      Variegated slowly changes from one color to another along its length, but Coloris is a sharper, quicker change in color.

    I can’t thank you enough for making this! I have been looking everywhere for a chart to organize the floss i have and what i need.
    I know it took a lot of time and effort on your part. Thank you so much! 🙂

    There seems to be an extra number on the 4 dmc colors. dmc has only 4 nbrs. could they be anothe brand

  8. Belinda

    Thank you for your useful charts and working on the updates. I still have 4 DMC skeins that I can’t find so I’m figuring they have been discontinued quite a while ago: 30414, 30415, 30762 and 33371.

    What do you think?

    I really enjoy your blog and wish you all the best.

    1. LordLibidan

      Those are some interesting threads. So the 30— range was a rayon range replaced with the satin range afterwards. This included S414, S415, S762 and S3371, the threads you’re looking for. You can still pick these up from some retailers, but not from DMC direct, however, they haven’t said they’ve discontinued any threads in the satin range. We do intend to add these to the list, but we know there are others out there too (up to 8) however we’re struggling to find them…

  9. Jacque Blundell

    Any chance of getting a spreadsheet for Pearle Cotton and Matte Cotton?

    1. LordLibidan

      I’m afraid that’s not currently on our roadmap so it won’t happen for a while, but we’ll be happy to make one when we can. 😀

  10. Jenni

    Thank you for taking the time to do all this! Do you have a list/chart of the DMC Satin Floss? I’m just trying to make sure that my personal list is complete. Thank you again!

    1. LordLibidan

      I’m afraid we don’t currently have this, but we do intend to add it soon!

      1. Amy

        Hi, I think you are missing S909? – it’s a very dark emerald green.
        Thanks for the spreadsheet – it is proving very useful!

        1. LordLibidan

          You are correct! In fact, we missed 21 satin threads. However they’ve all been added now!
