[mini] roses are red
yes, roses are red, and this braid is a rich, saturated statement! it's perfect for those red roses, but it's also wonderful for christmas garments. the colors are bold and delicious. floche makes the most amazing bullions. you get two shades of red - one that is more of a "true" red and the other that is rich and divine. you also get two complimentary greens to add depth to your embroidery motif. there are about 50 strands roughly 18 inches long in each color - lots of material for many embroidery motifs!
