Linen is a wonderful fabric to use for embroidery. Not only is it one of the most sustainable fabrics, but the fibers create a wonderful texture in your finished piece. We have a rich earthy palette of linens which work wonderfully for embroidery, but also can be use in combination to create applique pieces.
Linen has a looser weave than cotton, therefore when doing embroidery on the lighter colours you may see some slight trailing of threads behind and the fabric has more of a tendency to fray. This is easily prevented by using a fray stop or loosely hemming the fabric. If using for applique, we recommend getting some starch spray to make the fabric more rigid whilst it is being stitched.
The fabric is available in either 25 x 48 cm sections or 50 x 48 cm sections.
