LINEN....FOR PUNCH NEEDLE EMBROIDERY!!! You heard me correctly ;~)...we can no punch on linen!!!
This wonderful linen, from Searsport Rug Hooking, was milled specifically for Punch Needle Embroidery and hand stitching. It is a tighter weaver than what is found for cross stitch therefore it holds our delicate little cotton and wool loops tight, like the weavers cloth does. **OF NOTE.... It is not AS tight of a weave as Weavers cloth so if you are a beginner, you may want to wait and give the linen a try when you have gotten a few finished pieces worked up and you are comfortable with your punching rhythm. This is just my suggestionyou are, of course, welcome to start your punch needle journey with whatever fabric you choose. :)
Thus far I have punched, on this linen, with my small and medium needle tips (Cameo Ultra-Punch) with Moire' Wool Thread and Valdani, Perle Cotton (size 8) and it has worked beautifully.
This lovely stitchers linen measures 56" wide and is just wonderful in color and feel. :)
Available by the 1/4 yard which will measure 18" x 27". However, if you would like a larger, uncut piece, just order the number of pieces you would like and let me know in the notes to leave it as a single piece. :)
