Needlepoint Thread Color & Conversion Charts

We have an extensive list of different brand needlepoint yarn and wool conversion charts.   We have conversion charts for brands DMC, Anchor, Elizabeth Bradley, Gloriana Lorkieet, Paterna wool, and Waverly wool.  

Patterns and designs usually list a particular brand or type of needlepoint yarn or wool. If you prefer to use a different brand or even type of yarn, these needlepoint thread color conversion charts will help you convert yarn colors from one brand to another.  

We have manufacturer published needlepoint yarn conversion charts along with charts done by independent stores or websites. The ideal way to choose colors for your projects is, of course, to have actual yarn so you can compare them to the available yarn you have on hand or you can purchase at your favorite shop, but these charts can help you make selections. Be aware that the converted color may not be an exact match but a close substitute.

With this extensive list of yarn color conversion charts, hopefully, you will find what you need!  

We also have Needlework Thread Conversion Charts and Color Charts for floss, beads, threads, and other charts.

Be sure to pin or bookmark this page so you will be able to find the yarn conversion charts when you need them.
