      Which of DMC's products are you looking at?  Because on the DMC website (http://www.dmc-usa.com), the Tapestry Wool certainly does have colors in the 7000 range, which is likely what Regia, being authenticity nuts, would use, rather than DMC cotton floss (especially since Paterna also seems to be a wool thread).

      >which gives the color numbers, Paterna and DMC, for period dyes.  Wonderful!  I was all ready to rush down to my local craft store and lay in a stock of the threads for comparison, but looked online to see if there were a color chart there.  Indeed!  However, the DMC colors only go as high as 5286.  The numbers on the Regia chart all are in the 7000 range.
