$27.79$71.47 USD

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

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.

The silk organza fabric is a fine transparent fabric that is strong, non-stretchy, non-shiny and non-glossy unlike some organza fabrics. It makes a great fabric for shadow work embroidery as the embroidery becomes the feature and not the fabric.

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