Fiber Recommendations: Fruits & Flowers

Below, you will find the threads you will need for the Fruits & Flowers 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 Fruits & Flowers Kit. Otherwise, it's always nice to have some leftover fiber for future canvases!

Pear 158 (3 skeins)
