This script is intended to choose nearby floss colors for a given RGB input. Enter the values for Red, Green and Blue. If needed, adjust the Variance. Variance is the amount by which a Red, Green or Blue value can vary from the given value and still be matched. Then, press "Convert", or your Enter key. If no results appear, try increasing Variance. "RELEV." is short for Relevance; this is the sum of the variance of all three colors. A smaller number is generally better.
Based on the conversion chart found here, which is in turn based on the one found here. The seven colours marked with *** were deleted from the DMC range in June 2001 but have been left in the listing for reference purposes - some older patterns will still show these colours. The 27 colours marked +++ were added to the DMC range for UK & Europe in June 2001. It is not known at this time if these colours will be made available worldwide. Each colour has a name (though note these are not official DMC names - they have never named them!) and the Red, Green and Blue values listed. RGB values may be useful if you need to use the right colour in a graphics program, for example. This includes a complete list of all the DMC stranded cotton colours to date (listed below) except for the variegated colours. Last Update to List: July 7th 2001.
