You can use cotton, silk, polyester or wool/acrylic appliqué thread to whipstitch wool shapes to the background. I prefer using #100 Invisifil polyester because it is strong, thin and an exact color match is not needed. It virtually disappears into the weave of the wool.
I like to use Ellana 28 wt. 2 ply wool/acrylic thread or Perle cotton #8 thread to outline flowers with a stem stitch . Exact color match with the wool is not necessary. Some contrast is better to "pop" the flowers and outline petals. Use cotton 6 strand embroidery thread to embellish flowers: Cosmo, from Japan, and Presencia, from Spain, are superior embroidery threads.
