Almond Flower Kit
A Brazilian Embroidery Kit
by Blackberry Lane
Embroidery kits designed by Delma Moore
The Almond Flower Kit is a small, delicate embroidery project showcasing a floral design using Brazilian Embroidery stitches.
Brazilian Embroidery is always done with rayon embroidery floss, which is a z-twisted floss with a very high sheen. Stitches commonly used in Brazilian Embroidery include bullion knots, French knots, cast-on stitch, drizzle stitch, and pretty much any stitch that can be used to produce dimensional floral elements.
This kit would make an delicate and enjoyable project for the brave novice through to the more experienced stitcher by following the detailed enclosed instructions.
It would also be a suitable gift for the more discerning stitcher who likes a variety of projects to work on.
Almond Flower Kit contains:
- Printed fabric design
- Full Skeins of required Edmar Yarn
- Easy to follow step by step instructions with illustrations

Although many of these stitches are used in other forms of embroidery, the technique used to create them is slightly different. The difference is caused by the method used to manufacture the rayon thread. For example, cotton thread uses an S twist when the fiber plies are combined into a strand. Rayon thread uses a Z twist. One type of twist turns the fiber plies clockwise; the other turns them counterclockwise. When forming the knots of Brazilian embroidery, the embroiderer must wrap the thread onto the needle in the opposite direction from that used in other types of embroidery, otherwise the fibers of the thread will unravel and make the resulting stitches and knots unattractive.
