J&P Coats floss color numbers

I bought some J&P Coats floss recently and am trying in vain (so it seems) to match up the numbers I have to their DMC counterparts. Problem is, the J&P numbers I have don't even match the ones on their own--or any others'--color list. For example, I have a bright orange skein numbered 00169 and a khaki-colored skein numbered 03108 which don't even come close to the numbers I see on various conversion charts on the web. Any solutions or suggestions would be very very appreciated.

    Have you asked Coats & Clark?
    If they don't know what they are, they might be bad replicas from China. Go to top

    Melissa, did you ever figure out how to convert it? As I bought a bunch from Wal Mart as well labeled under J&P Coats and I cannot figure out the conversions. I did realize it was made in India so wondering if Wal Mart has been selling knockoff floss. Go to top

    I found an old chart but do not see the numbers you have. The chart has DMC, New J&P, Color Name and J&P Coats Skeins
    There is a Bright Orange Red (DMC 606) (New J&P 2334) (J&P Skeins 237)
    Burnt Orange DK (DMC 608) (New J&P 2332) (J&P Skeins 259)
    No Kakhi color Go to top
