Purple Iris (DMC Floss range 554 -550)

Blue Iris (DMC Floss range 827-826)

Orange Iris (DMC Floss range 722 -720)

IRIS

The Iris is the third Goldwork project in the Royal School of Needlework Embroidery Technique book.

You will need the following gold threads to work the project, which you can purchase from me individually or in a kit of supplies. The instructions for the design is in the Royal School of Needlework Embroidery Techniques Book.

The gold thread amounts are worked out for the design size on page 128. The materials supply list in the Royal School of Needlework Book suggests Super Pearl Purl and Fine Purl Purl for the outlines on the Iris petals and leaves. It is not indicated in the instructions where the Fine Pearl Purl is used on the design so I suggest using the Super Pearl Purl for all the outlines. The two size Pearl Purls are very similar in size so the over all affect will not be spoilt if only the one size Pearl Purl is used.
