Efflorescence Punch Needle Pattern- This beautiful floral pattern was created using (RMW) Rustic Moire 100% Wool Threads from Spain. *This Pattern also includes the Valdani Perle Cotton threads list and the NEW DMC Floss color list, providing several thread options if you choose to substitute the RMW threads.
"EFFLORESCENCE" meaning blossoming or coming into flower, was the concept behind this Art Nouveau style design. This graceful pattern has a special element with the addition of small wool flower buds used to create dimension on the punch needle design.
Efflorescence Pattern Size: 7 1/2 x 10
PATTERN OPTIONS:Paper patternorDrawn on Weavers Cloth patternboth available with the optional purchase of the Custom Rustic Moire Wool Thread 10 pc. kit.
*Please Note: Save by purchasing thread kit with the pattern. This is a better overall value than purchasing separately.
DMC 6 stand Floss.Please Note:The DMC floss 6 strand skeins selected are solid colors, thus are not variegated like some Valdani colors used in this pattern.DMC will create a slightly different finish to the pattern from the Valdani thread colors.
TheNEWDMC Floss & Valdani Thread colors codeswill be included on a separate sheet, along with the formula & information needed to help estimate the amount of DMC floss needed to complete this pattern.
I recommend for thePaper pattern versionthat you use a small lightbox and Micron 05 Archival Ink Pen to trace your patterns onto your weaver's cloth fabric. SeeSuppliesfor purchasing quality Weavers Cloth fabric if needed.
TheDrawn-on weaver's cloth pattern versionis a "ready to go" pattern, and is all hand-drawn on quality weavers cloth fabric and is ready to go on your frame or hoop.

Patterns that are purchased with (RMW) thread kits will include the thin wool strips and pieces needed to create the small roses stitched onto the pattern.
How to add the tiny wool flowers: This added element is quite easy, Just use a matching wool or fabric color. Cut into small strips ( like a rug hooking worms) and roll to create a small-looking flower bud then stitch on the front side of the design. Very easy and creates a lovely element to the pattern.
About RWM Threads: There are about 114 different colors in the thread line. They have approximately 89 yards on each spool, comparable to the yardage of Valdani size 8 thread. The wool thickness is between a size 8 and 12 in the Valdani Perle cotton threads.
I really enjoy working with (RWM) threads and love the matte finish created with these threads. The 100% wool thread makes the punch needle designs look like tiny "wool hooked rugs" and will also be quite durable. Perfect for creating table-runners or pillows. If you haven’t used this thread before, it is worth the try!
The finish that Valdani threads-Perle Cotton creates is a more pearlized finish to the design. Valdani is always a wonderful thread to use in punch needle and is my go-to thread.
