LF - Grey Linen Fabric Square

Linen is my favorite fabric to use for Crewel Embroidery. This linen comes from Europe and is woven in the EU.

You will receive an 18 x 18" piece of fabric for your pillow top.

The beauty of stitching on linen is as you poke the needle through the fabric, the threads separate so that the wool thread will glide through the fabric. Linen behaves different than cotton fabrics and is far superior (in my opinion) than stitching on cotton with wool thread.

I chose this Grey Color for those of you who prefer more neutral shades for the backdrop of your stitching. It will look fantastic with the bright colors of crewel wool I have chosen.

Center the design in the middle of the fabric. I suggest protecting the edges from fraying by zigzagging along the edge. You can also apply FrayCheck along the edge or wrap the edge in masking tape.
