Cotton Organdie is a slightly transparent yet firm, closely woven fabric that does not fray easily which is most commonly used for Carrickmacross lace.

It is very important to use cotton Organdie for Carrickmacross lace, do not use organza fabric or a fine cotton fabric as the fabric will fray too easily and the embroidery will fall apart.

In the product pictures the Carrickmacross lace embroideries are worked on cotton Organdie fabric with honeycomb tulle behind the Organdie.

The ToolTron safety scissors with blunt ends are the perfect lace hand embroidery scissors and are highly recommended for needlework techniques that require precision cutting such as Carrickmacross Lace, Fine White Work, Hardanger and Drawn Thread.

The blunt ended scissors enables you to get close to the edge of the area to be cut without snipping the fabric with the point of the scissors by mistake.

The blades of the scissors are sharp for a clean cut and slightly curved to get a closer cut.

Embroidery or crewel needles have a long eye for easier threading, a slender shaft and a sharp point to the needle so that the stitches can be worked close together and there is more control for the placement of the stitches.

The needles can be used for surface embroidery and sewing.

Crewel/embroidery needles are not suitable for counted thread work as the point of the needle would easily catch the threads of the fabric, distorting the counted work.

Size 10 are my choice needles for fine surface embroidery in which only one single strand of silk thread or embroidery cotton is used.

For very fine embroidery. when only using a single strand of fine thread or for sewing down No. 8, No. 9 and No. 10 gold purl threads use size 12 crewel embroidery.

Lugana fabric is a blend of 52% cotton and 48% rayon. I have a choice of 28 count antique white and 25 count black. Lugana fabric is 55 inches wide.

The fabric has even weave threads so that stitches/patterns will work out more regular than on an uneven weave such as linen fabric. It has a nice smooth and firm surface so that when the embroidery is complete the viewer sees the embroidery and is not distracted by the fabric.
