Choosing the Right Cross Stitch Fabric

Whether you're a beginner or pro, we have the cross stitch fabric to help you create a beautiful finished product. Choose the fabric type and cross stitch cloth count that work best for your cross stitching project. If you're not sure which cross stitch material is the right one, check out the following things when selecting your counted cross stitch fabric.

Cross Stitch Cloth Gauge

An important consideration when choosing cross stitch fabrics is the gauge (that is, the size of the holes) which is determined by the spacing of the warp (lengthwise threads) and weft (crosswise threads). The number of holes per inch tells you the fabric count. For example, 28 holes per inch is a 28-count cloth.

Hole counts range from 7 to 40, with the most popular being 28 and 32. The bigger the number, the finer the cloth. The finer the cloth, the harder it is to see the holes. That's why beginners should use fabrics with smaller hole counts.

Types of Cross Stitch Materials

The most common types of cross stitch fabric by the yard are Aida, evenweave and linen. Each has its advantages and should be chosen based on your level of expertise and personal preference.

  • Aida fabric: This type of cloth is made of 100% cotton and is similar to canvas. It's a wise choice for new cross stitchers because the large holes are easy to see.
  • Evenweave: This cross stitching fabric is so-named because the threads are all the same size. You can get evenweave cross stitch fabric in 100% cotton (like Monaco) or in cotton/rayon blends (such as Lugana and Jobelan). Evenweave fabrics have various hole counts, although the most common are 28 and 32. Stitches in an evenweave fabric are typically made over two squares rather than one.
  • Linen: The threads in 100% linen cross stitch fabrics are uneven. You'll notice some threads are thinner and that the material contains some "slubs." You can get linen counted cross stitch fabric in various count sizes. Linen cross stitch fabric can be tricky for beginners. Like evenweave, the stitches are usually made over two squares.

Choosing Cross Stitch Fabric Colors

The color of your cross stitch cloth will depend on the look you're trying to achieve. Ivory is a classic color for cross stitch material with a neutral tone that makes it a solid choice for various projects. Bright white cross stitching fabric lends a modern feel to your project, and antique white falls somewhere in between the two. Black makes a striking background color, while grey is a softer alternative.

Experienced stitchers may choose cross stitch fabrics with a design. These modern alternatives can produce a unique result but require careful planning to ensure the color scheme will work with the pattern and cross stitch floss chosen for the project.
