Threads

Keeping track of threads, floss, silks, etc., etc.

Aurifil  Aurifloss – don’t have any of these but have a nice color card for doing conversions on collections.

Caron Collection

Classic Colorworks – Belle Soie

DMC Article 117  (cotton floss)

Dinky Dyes

Eterna Silk  (regular and overdyed) – The stash I have are 5 meter skeins.  Not enough to do anything serious.  It’s a bit slinky to work with.

Empress Silk – a bit like Eterna Silk… slinky to work with but I have a lot of 8 meter skins for doing monochrome pieces.

Gentle Arts Sampler Threads  (GAST)

Gloriana

The Dye is Cast – most of these are variegated threads.   I don’t choose by number.  Just by color.

The Thread Gatherer – Silk & Colors

Threadworx

Weeks Dye Works – Digital Color Chart
