Thread amounts

I have a pattern I want to do and it gives the amounts for the thread in lengths instead of skeins. How do I figure how much to buy. Thank You for any help you can give me.

    Hi Alice,
    My rule of thumb is to buy one skein of each colour listed. If you don't think that's enough, buy two of each just in case. They'll never go to waste... That will get you started, at any rate. Note that each DMC skein holds roughly 8 yds (8.8 m) of thread, if that helps at all...

    Good luck, Go to top
