This quick guide will assist you in selecting matching colors of DMC brand embroidery floss to match our suede colors. Embroidery floss can be used in many ways including braided accents on tack items, fringe on doll clothing, cinches, decorative stitching on saddle blankets, etc.

Some of the colors are very close to the suede color, while others have no exact match, but the closest floss number (or numbers) are offered. The suede colors may vary a slight bit from piece to piece as well. A * indicates the floss color is the closest match possible, but no closer match is available.


Use standard black or white for these colors. White suede is actually a bit off white, however, DMC makes no off white color that is a better match than regular white.
