DMC Thread Matches for Unavailable Colours in the UK/Europe

Currently DMC thread colours 3880-3895 are not available to buy from Authorized DMC UK/Europe retailers. They are only for sale outside the EU and not allowed to be imported and sold. Kate from Lakeside Needlecraft has gone through the 465 current threads and made an alternative pack which is matched as closely as possible to the unavailable thread colours.

Kate's thread matches

I hope this is useful for everyone. Kate mentions they’re not identical in color, but I think she got pretty darn close to exact matches here. Amazing eye for color matching.

If you’re interested in picking up the full pack of these 16 thread matches,
you can do that in one click at Lakeside Needlecraft.

Super special thanks to Kate for sharing this with everyone and for taking the time to find such excellent thread matches.
