Thread colours in EK Success kit

by Julia Woodward

I have a cross stich kit from EK Success. I made a mistake and used double thread instead of single so I dont have enough thread.

The colour is 17005. What is the equivalent colour in DMC or Anchor please?

I use dimensions and have to convert some threads to DMC for the same reason. I contacted Dimensions and asked them if they had a conversion list which they did. You might try the same with EK they just might have conversion chart or may even supply free replacements.

Unspecified brand

I often find that manufacturers do not state which brand or brands of thead they include in their kits.

The number they have given the color is likely unique to their company, sadly.

If possible, I would suggest taking the thread with you to a retailer and trying to match it against those they have in stock.

If you have had to remove all the stitching you did incorrectly, it may not even matter if the shade is slightly different, as long as it blends nicely with the other colors in the kit.
