This pack is one fat quarter of each of our signature backings.
Our primitve linen that is 64 in wide: Your piece will measure 32x18. This linen is best suited for cut wool or fabric strips of #6 and above, including hand torn and proddy work. This weave works ok for the Oxford punch needle in the larger Regular needles with cut wool in #6 or bulky yarns.
Our stitching linen that is 56 in wide: Your piece will measure 28x18. This beautiful linen is perfect for embroidery and appliqué. It makes perfect backings for any stitchers work and linings on hand bags and totes.
Our Snow White linen Just like our much loved 64 in wide natural linen, our new lightened linen will offer the same wide width, even weave of 13x13 EPI, but in a much lighter easier to draw on “white” Who needs red dot with this great linen!
Our Monks Cloth we are so excited to be introducing our own monks cloth! We have chosen to go with a 2x2 white grid in our weave to add an extra line to help with your designing. This means there are stripes in both directions, not just one. It is a Soft cotton backing, 60 inches wide with 28x28 epi. Epi is ends per inch. This is a square weave just like our linen for those geometric designs!
