- Video: translating thread of mulina
Mulina was discovered in the late 19th century by the French company DMC, which gave this name to non-stitching embroidery threads.
And all the other companies producing similar threads began to use the invented DMC term. But, despite the huge popularity of quality
From DMC then and today, more and more often handicraftsmen prefer local firms whose products are cheaper, and the quality is not worse than foreign analogues.
In the Russian stores there are more10 brands of embroidery thread: DMC, Gamma, Anchor, Madeira, PNK im. Kirov, MayFlower, DOME, JP Coats, Ariadna, Belka, Bestex, Finca, Semco (and others) and ready-made embroidery kits from Dimensions, Lanarte, Panna, Pinn, Riolis, Alice, Golden Fleece, Heritage Crafts, Vervaco, E.
That's why the translation table is so relevant today.The mulina. After all, almost all schemes for embroidery are created under the threads of a certain company and to replace colors at random, without a table, is very risky, otherwise the result may be a complete discrepancy in the shades.
Not everyone has the opportunity to buy expensiveMulina from foreign manufacturers, that's why to replace the thread, for example, from DMC to an identical shade of Gamma or Anchor, a map of flowers is used for floss by numbers.
Consider the products of each company, including known and not so great, the advantages of their products.

And the cost of domestic Gamma mule is lower than foreign ones, which makes it possible for needlewomen to save money on materials.

Threads as well as Anchor are twice mercerized, and their color is able to withstand temperatures above 90 degrees.
Due to the spiral packaging it is ensuredA convenient supply of threads, and the twist in one six thin threads is much easier to take the amount needed for embroidery, without entangling all the others. If you embroider, not separating into 6 layers, you can get a luxurious tapestry effect.

Despite the fact that the mulina of this company has a more delicate structure than all the others, however the quality is not inferior and the palette almost corresponds to the DMC palette, which is very convenient.
Coloring Mayflower is very persistent, has 6 additions. Many needlewomen say that threads are more convenient than VMS because of their fineness, because The crosses are denser.

Polish Ariadne mouline appeared in the 19th century and today has many prestigious awards, which already characterizes the threads as very high quality.
Moulinet Ariadne also have resistance to external influences, are made from Egyptian mercerized cotton, do not become entangled in the process of embroidering, do not "swing", lie evenly.
The color palette is 330 shades.
Of the minuses - Ariadne's moulin is hard to find in Russian stores.
Mulina BELKA are Russian, butAre manufactured in China. The color palette is almost identical to DMC, so there is no difficulty in translating the shades of the table. The quality of the yarns is also not inferior to the French ones at a price two times lower, but the BELKA floss is slightly stiffer. In addition, these threads are hard to buy in a regular store, you have to search and order on the Internet.
However, the manufacturers of VELCA threads plan to squeeze out foreign competitors from the Russian market in the near future and so far it has been slow but successful.
Bestex floss made in China and have already managedTo win the needlewomen high quality, wide color palette (about 400 colors) and low price. Mark similarity with the Gamma mullet - some numbers even coincide, because here the translation of threads along the table is much easier.
Thread Bestex differ matte shade, brightness, docility and strength (do not get confused and do not tear).
Mouline does not sit down and does not molt when washing, do not fade, do not shine like DMC.
Many embroiderers rightly believe that Bestex will soon push the prestigious Madeira.
By the way, they are more economical to order from China than to buy in Russian stores.
Of the disadvantages - a little slippery, that is, constantly slipping out of the needle. But this is solved by a large tail left when embroidering.
Mulina Vestex are present in the sets "A wonderful needle".

Russian mulina "Shtopka" or "Lilac" haveA small palette (only 20 shades) are not exactly designed for embroidery, they are dull and pale, but also very high quality: resistant to washing and the sun, to the touch are soft and lie on the canvas perfectly. More suitable for those who have accumulated a lot of supplies from grandmothers. They embroider mainly those details of landscapes, where unnecessary gloss is unnecessary, that is, land, mountains and the general background. For the price they are very cheap.
J.P. Coats Sets from American company J.P. Coats are absolutely analogous to VHI, a unique quality mulina with a wide range of hues at a low price. But they are not on sale in Russia at all.
The most inexpensive mulina is Chinese, Indian and Bulgarian. But immediately use them for embroidery is not recommended, it is better to check the coloring for durability.

Matching table for floss Gamma, DMC, Anchor, Madeira Let's try to embroider in different sets to determine the best, most convenient and interesting option for yourself.
Of course, the manufacturers of threads of floss and kits considered by us are only basic, in fact there are much more manufacturers.
We made a review of those floss that are in the table of colors matching the mulina.
The transfer table for the moulinet will allow you to embroider any mulina that you bought, even when to the scheme of the VMI or Madeira number not available to you at cost or location.
I want to recommend a few points at the end:
- So that the thread is not tangled or stiff with embroidering, keep the length of the thread at 50 cm, no more;
- All flosses can withstand washing at high temperaturesTemperatures, but still we recommend that you do not erase the finished works in the machine, but manually and preferably at low water temperatures - so you are guaranteed to save the embroidery.
- Ready work should not be squeezed or wrung out, much less dried in an auto-dryer.
- To return the floss to the former shine you need to wash the work in warm water with vinegar added to it, which also prevents molting.
