Amelia’s cheery sampler has been reproduced with a palette of only 8 colours from Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie 100.3. We have provided conversions for Soie d’Alger (SDA) and DMC below. You will only need one spool or skein of each colour with the exception of SDA 2126 and 2925 and DMC 816, when 2 spools are required when working on 28ct fabric (14ct Aida).
(There is a correction to the thread legend in the printed booklet - The conversion for Soie 100.3 #628 should be SDA #4126 and DMC #3371)
