WEEKS DYE WORKS TO DMC FLOSS

CONVERSION CHART

Weeks Dye Works colors are variegated enough to be noticeable, yet subtle enough to blend naturally. While great care is taken for to be consistent from one dye bath to the next, there is no guarantee as everything from the temperature of the water to the humidity in the air plays a factor in how the color comes out.

The DMC equivalent is listed after each color name. If there is a , between numbers, that means you could use either DMC shade. If there is a / between numbers, that means you should blend one ply of each of the two DMC shades to capture the color.

This conversion chart is approximate as it's difficult to capture the color shading within the hand-dyed fibers, and also due to dye lot changes. The suggestions here are not provided by either Weeks Dye Works nor DMC. The look you get with DMC will not resemble the pictured model of the design you are converting from as most of the WDW shades have a minimum of two totally different main colors within the strand, so keep this in mind when trying to convert.
