Conversion Issues

Hello. I am working on Dimensions Peaceful Silhouette, and have run out of #6096 - Gold. However, the conversion chart here says that Dimensions #6096 is Tan, and I noticed that there isn't a "Gold" on the Dimensions conversion chart. Please advise!!

Thanks,
Sara

    Sara,
    The Dimensions code 6096 is from an older kit and is correct for that only. However, DMC has a line of metallics and 5284 or 5282 might work for your current project. I always substitute DMC for all kit floss before I start them since I've had issues in the past. I don't use the metallics that come with the kits.

      Hello again -

      I wanted to let you guys know that the conversion chart for Dimension to DMC is correct even though my pattern is older. The color names didn't match, but the color codes do...I bought DMC #436 (Tan) to replace the Dimension #6096 (Gold) and it's pretty much a perfect match!!

      Thank you again for your help and suggestions, I LOVE this site =)
