Coloris by DMC

Full range of Coloris threads by DMC

I recently was asked by DMC’s US Product Development office if I wanted to design a cross stitch pattern for them using their new Coloris threads. 

Anyone who knows me is aware that I basically only use DMC threads, apart for when I want to stitch with silk…  which sadly DMC does not have. ( Dream… a full range of silk embroidery floss, that match their classic colour range )

Coloris is very different from the regular variegated embroidery floss, in that it is not limited to a variety of tones from the same colour, it’s made up of four different, yet complimentary colours.  The change is also quite rapid, about every 5-7 stitches you have new colour starting. This makes for quite a dramatic, fun or colourful effect, depending on the colour chosen. 

I received a complimentary set of the 24 different colors, and a piece of white DMC Monaco cotton evenweave, which I  will be using  for the original design plan...   

Coloris is a range of embroidery floss that I would recommend for adding 'interest' to a cross stitch project, or for monochrome patterns... but best of all, I think they are perfect for a modern take on traditional samplers..... the embroidery floss have given me a little idea, and in the near futur I will be sharing a CSA (Cross Stitch Along) with you all.

My personal favorites

It’s a little hard to choose favorites, as each embroidery floss is perfects in its own place and usage, but if I had to choose these would be preference: 

-          Columbine gardens 4500
-          Heather 4504
-          Hydrangea 4505
-          Paris 4515
-          Canadian night 4522
-          North wind 4523
