This long stitch kit is worked in Anchor tapestry wools which come in cut lengths and skeins. Each colour starts with a knot to the front of the canvas which is later trimmed. The advice is to work through adjacent areas so that one side of each stitch is into a shared hole and the other into an empty hole. So different from the advice for silken long stitch.
The stitching was fine although I was a little short on three colours. That could have been because I looped them over the back of the work and didn't finish off and start again, so possibly my fault.
I finished off with a little silver floss in horizontal long stitches. The metallic floss immediately unravelled but still had the desired effect. There was another length unused so I could have tried again.
Bothy Threads, who now manufacture these kits are very good at sending extra floss very promptly if required.
