I didn't receive as many replies to this as I thought I would. Here's
what I did get.
Site listing the RGB values for DMC:
My personal opinion:
Red: #666 (Christmas Red, Bright)
Blue: #995 (Electric Blue, Dark)
Yellow: #307 (Lemon)
Orange: #947 (Burnt Orange)
Violet: #553 (Violet) or #552 (Violet, Medium)
Green: #700 (Christmas Green, Bright) or #699 (Christmas Green)

I took a color class in which we made a color wheel from DMC, but I
can't lay my hands on it at the moment. I'll look for it later this
week and let you know what I find.
