Floss:

  1. Sullivans 45126 – DMC 554;
  2. Sullivans 45040 – DMC 208;
  3. Sullivans 45124 – DMC 552;
  4. Sullivans 45326 – DMC 3041.

 

Pearl #5:

  1. Sullivans 35239 – DMC 841;
  2. Sullivans 35240 – DMC 842;
  3. Sullivans 35123 – DMC 550;
  4. Sullivans 35126 – DMC 554;
  5. Sullivans 35040 – DMC 208;
  6. Sullivans 35124 – DMC 552;
  7. Sullivans 35326 – DMC 3041.

 

The Sullivans 35537 is the overdye Berry Blast, and I haven’t looked closely at the new DMC Variations to see if there is a corresponding color that will substitute. I think probably Caron’s Wildflowers in Mulberry will have the colors in it and could be a substitute, but it can be tricky sometimes and that particular overdye has some muddy colors in it on occasion.

COLOR CONVERSIONS

 

Presencia Pearl Cottons:

For #8 Pearl 2699 – DMC #8 333 (will be darker purple than the pearl cotton used in the model)

For #8 Pearl 3400 – DMC #8 798 (will be a brighter blue than the pearl cotton used in the model)

For #8 Pearl 4059 – DMC #8 959 (will be a slightly darker sea green than the pearl cotton used in the model)

 

Treenway Silks:

(The texture of the Zen Shin is about like that of a #5 pearl cotton, but is softer and not as tight. The Tranquility is a tightly twisted cord, more like a #8 pearl cotton.)

For Tranquility 956 – DMC Floss 792, 2 strands

For Zen Shin 956 – DMC #5 Pearl 792

For Zen Shin 15 – DMC #5 Pearl 943 (will be greener than the color used in the model)

For Zen Shin 16 – DMC #5 Pearl 598

For Zen Shin 217 – DMC #5 Pearl 211 (will be pinker than the color used in the model) or DMC #5 3042 (will be grayer than the color used in the model)

Zen Shin 37 – DMC #5 Pearl 972

 

To substitute DMC Floss for the Zen Shin – you will need to use several strands of floss for coverage, and to manipulate strands with the double fans – doable, but extra care will need to be taken.

 

For Zen Shin 956 – DMC Floss 792

For Zen Shin 15 – DMC Floss 3809 (a closer color match than the #5 Pearl suggested)

For Zen Shin 16 – DMC Floss 598

For Zen Shin 217 – DMC Floss 155 (a closer color match than either of the #5 Pearls suggested, but darker than the color used in the model)

For Zen Shin 37 – DMC 3820 (a closer color match than the #5 Pearl suggested)
