This cross stitch kit contains all you need to embroider a lovely linen piece featuring 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 colors from pink to the brightest of reds.
