I have cut into pieces of fabric of different kinds of linen fabrics that are nice to embroider on. The pieces of fabric are 30 x 30 cm in size, so it is possible to use an embroidery bow that is up to 25 cm in diameter.
The pieces of fabric are available in four different types of linen:
- Natural linen (280 g / m2 ) - a finer linen fabric but which is a bit strong. It is this linen fabric that I use for kitchen towels and aprons.
- Natural linen (450 g / m2) - a stronger version of the linen above. In the picture with the started Frida Kahlo embroidery, I use this fabric.
- Mottled natural linen (280 g / m2) - this fabric is woven with yarns in different colors where the warp is lighter than the weft, which gives the fabric a varying structure and an irregular mottled appearance. This is the fabric I used for my nature-embroidery and for Ellie's nameplate.
- Fine sackcloth (400 g / m2) - a more robust fabric. It is this fabric you see in the picture with the embroidered ball of yarn.
All linen fabrics are 100% linen and untreated (unbleached).
I have sewn edge stitch, but the fabric is not washed. This only matters if you want to wash the fabric. Then there is a risk that it will shrink a little.
