By Ingrid Bjernefors-Dahlman for Nordiska of Gothenburg, 1964

Ingrid's beautiful Linnaeus was originally called Skogsglänta, Swedish for glade, a clearing in the woods. 

Included in this kit: 

- Hand printed Linnaeus pattern on natural linen, 50 x 50 cm

The print itself measures 29 cm wide, 22 cm tall.

- 5 skeins of linen embroidery thread. Please note these may come as single skeins or as a hank depending on our stock. The material is exactly the same: 14 meter, in the five colours pictured here. 

- A chenille needle size 22. 

- A handy stitch card showing the 24 common stitches used in Nordiska’s embroidery. The stitches used in this kit is flat stitch or long-and-short stitch, satin stitch, stem stitch, y-stitch, lazy-daisy, split stitch and French knots.

- A full size copy of the original instructions from the 1960's. 

- A printed photograph of the Nordiska Archive Linnaeus drawing from 1964. On the reverse it notes the stitches, with a brief history of the origins of the design. 

This kit is suitable for beginners with easy to follow instructions, and a great way to get to know linen embroidery.
