Lilly’s delightful sampler has been reproduced with a palette of 5 colours from Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie 100.3. We have provided conversions for Soie d’Alger, Fine d’Aubusson Wool, and DMC. Only one skein or spool is required for each colour. There are only a handful of stitches in the yellow beige and grey green.
