We have been trialling the new DMC Coloris embroidery threads and have been very impressed with the result.
Coloris is the new multi coloured, stranded cotton embroidery thread form DMC.
Each 8m skein combines four complimentary colours in a six strand 100% cotton.
The complete colour change every 5cm enables you to easily achieve intricate effects with one thread.
Coloris embroidery threads are available in 24 multi-coloured skeins with unique colours, deep, soft and vibrant, in classical and contemporary shades.
Store owners that we have spoken to say that the threads have been incredibly popular, almost selling out as soon as they went on display.
A very useful feature of the launch has been the free “Tear off” designs available with the threads and DMC also have these available for download on their website.
Not a Replacement
There have been a few comments that the Coloris range is replacing the Variations range so we contacted DMC and can confirm that this is not the case.
Kim from DMC said:
“Our Coloris range is not replacing our colour variations range, these threads are 2 different threads”.
“The Coloris thread changes colour every 5cm whereas the colour variations is a variation of the same colour”.
The DMC Coloris threads are the same high quality as their standard colour range and are a great addition to the embroidery thread box.
Although they are primarily displayed as cross stitch work, the embroiderer can use this range using any technique to create some unique pieces.
