Very good question. I have been wondering the same. Thanks for asking. Right now I'm looking at Hemingworth's enbroidery cones, and while I love the colors, I see they are NOT the same beast as the DMC floss at my local stitchery cottage. Suitable for much finer work, I think. I like their peacock tones. Right now I'm using DMC's stuff for hand work to learn the stitches.
Alex, going to make pork/pineapple stir fry for us two.

If you're asking if DMC Rayon (discontinued) and DMC Satin are the same, then NO, they're NOT!!! DMC Satin is the replacement that DMC came up with when they discontinued their old DMC Rayon floss. That's why I'm stuck mid-project and have been searching for old DMC rayon floss, especially in black and white. Thanks to rctn, I think I'll have enough black to finish and may only have to take out the white parts to do the white over again with the Satin stuff.

Funny about this topic - I was at Michael's the other day & some lady was buying DMC rayon and satin for someone else (she wanted certain colours apparently) & asked the girl what the difference was - I don't think she really knew - but she did say if you use either, make sure all your stitches go the same way .... ///// or \\\\\ cuz the sheen is different if you mix up your slants. Would you like me to check and see if they have any more DMC white - it wouldn't be any bother at all.

DMC said when they changed the name that it was the same, however, that was some time ago I wrote a note to DMC asking for clarification. Haven't heard back yet but will post a note when, or if, I do.

Liz, I might not be able to do it today (headed to the Cape to drop DD off for some Grammy time) but email, and I'll see if I have a couple of skeins

I can think of a possible exception... if one was working in green leaves, I think stitching the left side of the leaf \\\\\ and the right side ///// might be a way to show delicate shadowing.... some of the Hungarian stuff I see has the stitcher using two different shades of green to achieve a like effect.
Good tip though.
Alex, who just learned that there are at least 11 different chain stitches....
