The Silk & Gold Rose kit is a very pretty design which covers couching Japanese gold with green silk floss to represent leaves, cutwork with bright check purl for the centre, and using long & short stitch with lovely silk flosses for the petals. Silk floss has a lovely sheen to it, which combines beautifully with the gold thread.


This silk & gold kit includes the design hand drawn onto a 20cm x 20cm square of white silk dupion, with a 38cm x 38cm square of calico support fabric, Japanese gold thread, gilt bright check purl, three reels of silk floss, full instructions with stitch diagram & stitch guide, beeswax, a size 22 chenille needle with buttonhole thread and a size 9 embroidery needle. All kept tidy in a neat little box.


The finished embroidery measures 7.5cm wide by 7.5 cm high.


Suitable for all levels.


All my kits are packaged using recyclable and/or biodegradable materials.
