Floss estimation is for stitching all five pieces as directed on 32-count linen. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand over-dyed fibers.
Package contains charting for each of the five pieces, stitching instructions, complete finishing instructions for the needlework smalls, and a worksheet area and alphabet for personalization.
I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
