I try to do all the mystery colors in shades of browns. I try not to go too dark or too light or too mottled.
I have to say that 38/42 is sainted isn’t it? Firm yet supple, and just uneven enough to be interesting. The 26/30 is the same but of course woven further apart but a nice alternative to aida.
The 36 is good. Little slubby and a nice soft hand.
The 40 ct has it’s own appeal. The linen thread is expensive – you can tell because the hand is crisp. Because the fiber is fine the holes are larger and many people buy it so they can execute specialty stitches – larger holes means you can go in and out more times without distortion.
