This cross stitch kit contains all you need to embroider a table of small tinctorial plants, derived from our spectacular Tinctorial Plants collection in the Museums and Heritage Collection.

Woad, Dyers rocket, madder and woodruff, indigo and parsley are all plants found on road sides and gardens.
Many tree leaves can also be used for dyeing, such as the walnut leaves forming the frame of this embroidery.
As for the little touches of pink in the leaves, these are not flowers, but cochineals! 
These little insects (Coccus Cacti) give a whole range of magnificent colours from pink to the brightest of reds.

The full colour pattern chart is printed on large A3 sheets with all the necessary explanations.
Size of motif: 180 points square.
When embroidered on 12 count/centimetre linen fabric the finished dimensions are 30 x 30cm.

This kit contains:
- a 40cm square swatch of cyclamen embroidery linen; 
- 12 cards of Retors du Nord embroidery floss: 2003, 2012, 2013, 2023, 2024, 2026, 2034, 2039, 2042, 2409, 2445 and 2749;
