Went out last night and significantly added to my floss stash... As I've been going through the colors, I've noticed some that have one color listed and another color in parentheses... I want to go through my inventory and make sure I know these aliases (to prevent much heartache when looking for a color).
I bought a color card a week or two ago, and found I had colors in my inventory that weren't on a color card. Putting them into DMC's site comes up with "no color exists".
So far (new color = old color):
3813 = 504
732 = 731
782 = 781
3760 = 806
740 = 971
407 = 3773
3326 = 776
Does anyone know how they get their numbering scheme and why discontinue one number for another?
I looked at my color card again and the differences are noted. I updated the list above with everything noted on the card for those without this info!
