Yup! That is a very good choice to work on with a punch needle.
Nice price too. You have a good nose for this!

I read that the cloth is a bit elastic en flexible. That normally is the case with polyesters.
So if you put it in the embroidery hoop it can have the tendency to shift while you work on it and put some pressure on it.

You can fix this by taking one of the two hoops and wrap some thin cotton ribbon (not satin!) around it.
Even some thin cloth from you emergency kit will do very nicely here.
Just clamp it up girl!
But not too rigid. As that can leave permanent pressure marks on a polyester fabric.

So I understand you need the Articolor conversion for 3 shades of antique mauve.
Mauve is a pale shade of purple often mixed with a little hint of burgundy red

With a calibrated computer screen I checked those 3 digital Articolor colours + with the help of the complete colour gamma of DMC & Anchor I have here.
Of course with a colour conversion between brands it's almost never the same shade.
So the numbers below are 'advice only'.
The final choice of colours must depend on the rest of the colour palette that you already have in the pattern.

Articolor 147:
DMC Baby Pink 818. Also possible DMC Light Baby Pink 819.
There is no direct substitute in the Anchor range for Articolor 147.

Perhaps you can use Anchor Soft Carnation 271 or Anchor Light Amethyst 869.
As said it all depends on the whole of the pattern palette.
Articolor 21:
DMC Medium Antique Mauve 316
Anchor Dark Antique Mauve 1018


Articolor 22:
DMC Light Antique Mauve 3727, also possible DMC 778 Very Light Antique Mauve / DMC Ultra Very Light Shell Pink 225
Anchor Medium Antique Mauve 1017

I underlined the best substitute possibilities.

Another thing crossed my mind: 1 strand of floss is thinner than the Articolor thread.
That is the same 'problem' with Vaupel & Heilenbeck thread that is also a 'monofilament'.
You will have to experiment with using 1 or 2 strands of floss to get the evenweave fully covered.

Please share with us what you chose to do with your project.
I'm sure everyone would like to learn from your experience !!!

Articolor thread can ofcourse be used for punch needle embroidery but it is not a first choice. Coverage of the fabric is too poor. Unless that is for the look you just wanted.
A better choice would be a more fluffy thread for that technique like a simple cheap acrylic thread used for knitting baby clothes.

Fabric like Tropico Mechanico is a good choice for punch needle emboidery though.

If you want some tips on punch needling look on YouTube.
Threading that punch needle is something you want to see done + the millimetres setting of it.
The only few things you need for punching is an embroidery hoop, a punch needle (thick or a thin one depending on the thread you choose) and pvc glue (like woodglue or mod podge) to fixate the loops on the back of the fabric.

Punch needling can even be done with a medical syringe + thick needle on it that is able to pass a fluffy thread. For marking the depth of the loops you just put a piece of tape around the needle.

An arts & crafts tip:
For amigurumi dolls you can punch needle hair on a piece of fabric and then sew that onto a doll.

No problem at all. Love to help.
Love these little puzzles too!

Tropical mechanico is a 100% polyester fabric for sewing.
In Argentina (where that Articolor thread comes from) most of the times very colourful ofcourse!
It is used for almost everything like cushions, tablecloths, curtains, skirts, jackets and things like a shoulderbag for example.
See the pink tropical mechanico fabric on the photo.
You cannot cross stitch on it like we do on evenweave.

It's thicker than cotton used for a men's shirt and thinner than blue jeans fabric.
Medium weight.

If you look here: dulcecasa.com.ar/productos/cortinas-de-cocina-tropical-mecanico-bordado/
you see that the fabric is combined with a white evenweave (on the top part) that can be embroidered.
In this case it's kitchen curtains.
The colourful curtains itself are made from that tropical mechanico fabric.


Luckily this nice type of polyester fabric is widely available in almost every country at an affordable price!

Perhaps this is the brand you're asking about?
In my Colour Cards File I recently filed these from Articolor (from Argentina).
It's not floss but monofilament just like the Vaupel & Heilenbeck thread.
Articolor is acrylic.
As far as I know there is no conversion chart to be found (on September 2020).
Maybe these colour charts help us out a bit?

I think I'm able to convert the pattern for you to DMC (or Anchor if you prefer that). Just pm me the name /link of the pattern and we'll give it a try.  Post time 2020-9-15 02:15
