Colour ranges

Most of the manufacturers colour ranges for Cross Stitch Professional have been measured accurately with a spectrometer to ensure the colour codes given by the colour key are true to the real threads. This is particularly important for photo to chart work where accurate colours are very important to the look of the stitched work.

All editions come with the guarantee that we will add any thread colour range if you supply a real thread shade card. There is no charge for adding new colour ranges.

We require a shade card containing an area of colour at least 6mm diameter.
