Honeycomb tulle (net) has very even and pretty hexagon shapes and is higher quality than the standard dress making tulle which has irregular oval shapes. Tulle hexagon size is measured by the holes per inch (HPI).

The white polyester tulle is very fine and delicate and is the tulle that I use in my Carrickmacross Lace kits and Fine white Work kits There are 24 holes to the inch and is slightly stretchy.

The cotton tulle is off white in colour and the lines of the tulle are slightly thicker than the polyester tulle. The cotton tulle should be washed before use, expect 5% – 10% shrinkage.

The Aida fabric is 100% cotton. I have 14 count and 16 count available.

The threads of the fabric are easy to count as they are are all the same size making it easy to see the holes in the fabric. 14 or 16 represents how many threads of fabric there are to the inch. 14 count fabric is easiest to see.

The fabric is durable, firm to the feel and handles taking out stitches well and can be washed once the embroidery is complete.

The Southern Belle muslin fabric (Calico in European terms) is a 100% cotton fabric and is light cream in colour.
This wonderful fine quality muslin fabric has a 200 thread count (regular muslin fabric thread count starts at 70) and no flecks, specks and slubs which is common in muslin fabric, it has a very clean look. It makes an ideal ground fabric for needle painting and other forms of surface embroidery. I use the southern belle fabric in my needle painting kits. It can be used double for extra support when working goldwork and as a backing fabric for silk fabric.

 

Please note that the center of the fabric has creases from the fabric being wrapped on the bolt by the manufacturer. Sorry I do not have time to wash and iron out the creases and the fabric is sold as is.  1/4 of the fabric is creased, the creased area should iron out (wash fabric flat in hot water and iron dry on cotton heat) and can be used for backing fabric.

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.
