The design uses 19 threads, mostly silks. I've also added some beautiful polymer clay beads which are attached to the canvas. The beads come in many colors and because they are all handmade, I can't promise which colors you will receive, but you definitely will receive ones that match the colors in the design. The design is stitched on 18 count mono canvas. The finished piece is 7"x6.25" I think you will love stitching this piece. I promise never a dull moment!
