Discontinued DMC Mouline Embroidery Floss Colors and their nearest replacement color
Oh help. You found a beautiful cross stitch or embroidery pattern and it contains a DMC embroidery floss color you cannot buy in any shop. With over 500 different shades in the collection you might not expect this to happen. But it can happen, as over time DMC discontinued Mouline Embroidery Floss colors.
DMC was founded in 1746. An impressive long time ago. So it may be no suprise that during all those years DMC has changed their floss collection here and there.
Unfortunatly for variegated floss colors we could not find a replacement number. So you may need to take a jump and change the color schema of your pattern.
For all the other numbers we provide the closest replacement color number in below list.
Floss colors 3880-3895 used to be available as a set package in the USA only and might be used in US patterns. These color numbers are very hard to get so we also included in below table a list of alternative colors you could use to replace these numbers.
