Ann Borrett 1646 - Reproduction Sampler

The model for Ann’s stunning band sampler was stitched using Weeks Dyeworks (Zweigart-based) 40ct linen in Straw with a palette of 11 Au Ver à Soie silks from their Soie d’Alger range. The skein quantities listed are based on 1 strand of Soie d’Alger on 40ct fabric. We have provided conversions for Soie 100.3 based on 1 strand of silk on 46ct linen and DMC based on 2 strands of cotton on 36ct linen.

The original sampler was stitched on linen that was approx. 58/60ct.

Ann stitched her sampler over 3 threads of linen with stitches that are reversible. If you prefer, your sampler could be executed over 2 threads.
