DMC perle thread #8 has been used for the detached chain and the stitches have been threaded with hand dyed lampshade fringing which is very similar to Bunka thread
This section of the sampler is worked on tea towel linen which is not quite an even weave.
Disperse dyes (also known as transfer dyes) on the lampshade fringing because it is a synthetic thread
