Fiber Recommendations: Floral Alphabet Sampler

Below, you will find the threads you will need for the Floral Alphabet canvas! The canvas is painted on 13 mesh, so I recommend using Silk & Ivory fibers, which are included in our kits. 

Silk & Ivory comes in one size (a 28-yard skein) - most colors below do not require a whole skein for this project. If you want just enough fiber to stitch this canvas, I recommend buying our Floral Alphabet Sampler Kit. Otherwise, it's always nice to have some leftover fiber for future canvases!


Fiber Recommendations:

Each color requires 1 skein unless otherwise noted
Silk & Ivory

White 002 (3 skeins)
Petunia 194
Orchid 191
Big Canary 156
Scrambled Eggs 166
Salmon 125
Shrimp 124
Sacre Bleu 114
Stream 209
Kiwi 55
Putting Green 229

Stitch Recommendations:

Tent Stitches
White background: Basketweave
Letters: Mostly continental, but Half-Cross when needed
I stitched the light green of the letters first so it was easier to anchor the rest of the colors
