I love using teal cotton floss in my projects. I’m sure you can agree! It’s a beautiful, versatile shade that comes in all sorts of different variations. Some shades can appear bluer (which is my favourite shade), while others fall under a more green shade.
In truth, teal is a blend of both blue and green. The origins of its name come from that of a bird – the Eurasian Teal. If you ever see photos of this beautiful bird, you’ll notice the distinctive and familiar colour on a stripe of its head.
It’s pretty fitting that the origins of its name came from nature. The application of this colour is perfect for any nature-based pattern or design. However, its gem-like hue is ideal for virtually any type of project (just like the one you see in this blog post!).
So let’s get right into it!
Here’s a look at this Cross-Stitch Sample Stitched with Teal Cotton Floss
Johanna stitched this sample from the cross-stitch design, “Baroque”, featured in Ink Circles. It’s clear with the pattern why this design was fittingly named as such! She highlighted one aspect of the pattern, using the teal cotton floss found in my Colour Complements Collection.
Colour #65 features a beautiful gem teal shade that appears more green than blue. If you look closely, it incorporates a blend of different teal greens, similar to what you would see in a pine tree upon closer look. This sample is stitched with two strands of cotton floss in Colour #65 on 28-count linen and measures approximately 3 ½ inches.
Such a stunning, beautiful and timeless pattern, created with a beautiful and regal colour.
Thank you, Johanna!
