Embroidery Thread Colour Charts
Marathon Colour Charts
The sample charts were created using high-resolution, high-color definition scans of the actual thread. The colour of the actual thread may vary marginally with that shown in the browser due to monitor differences, their settings, ambient lighting and other factors.
You can select from the below colour charts, supply us with your PMS colours or pop a business card in the mail for us to select the closest match.
Note: the colours with a black dot are currently available.
