Hi Everyone,

I am new to the cross stitch world, but I recently brought a bulk lot of threads from Ebay. I was able able to
identify each number with the help of the DMC/Ancor Chart, but 1. It's number is 3857, the colour
is a Rusty Brown. Anyone got any Ideas??

    I have a chart that calls that Dark Rosewood. ADVICE -- Pay attention to the "number" not the "name" of the color. DMC does not have official names for the flosses. Each designer may assign a different name to the same number. Go to top
