Embroidery fabrics

Actually you can embroider on any kind of fabric if you are adept at the art. And indeed many people do use embroidery on all kinds of cloth in order to embellish it. The choice of fabric actually depends on what you are trying to make and sometimes the stitches that you are planning to use. For example, if you are planning to use cross stitch you will need a fabric that allows you to create even and consistent squares.

Evenweave fabric is considered to be the best fabric for embroidery. Those that are tightly woven are good for regular embroidery and stitches like stem stitch, satin stitch and French knots but the ones that are loosely woven can prove to be better for embroidery patterns that need counting stitches, pulling threads or drawing threads. As expected you can find this fabric in a range of colors and the thread counts typically range from 32 counts to 18 counts.

Aida cloth is extremely popular for all kinds of counted embroidery patterns and therefore is a favorite among those who use cross stitch. The cloth is woven in such a manner that there are grouped fibers that create squares that can be counted easily. While there are plain pastel colored aida cloth options that you have, you will also be able to find aida cloth that has specific patterns printed on it for each cross stitch options.

Hardanger fabric that is a 22 percent evenweave made of cotton is best used for blackwork, cut work and counted threadwork too. You can also do embroidery on a range of other products that have been created already. In this manner you can customize the linen you purchased at a shop or embellish the placemats and napkins in your house.
