A beautiful, superb quality Italian even-weave linen in a collection of lovely, contemporary colors.

With approximately 37 threads per inch in a plump, full weave, the linen is suitable for both counted embroidery techniques and surface embroidery. Unlike many even-weave fabrics, this weave is full enough to support surface embroidery techniques like free-style embroidery, crewel work, and more.

Each piece of linen in the sample pack is 12" square, cut on the thread. There are four colors: a deep sky blue, a spring grass-green, a warm buttery yellow, and a lavender-pink.

I used this linen on several samples in my e-book Stitch Sampler Alphabet. I've also used it for a reticello sampler and for counted techniques, as well as other surface embroidery projects. It's versatile and sturdy, with a smooth hand and full weave.


The linen sample pack ships priority mail to US and Canadian addresses.

Notable excess shipping charges (when combined with other products in one purchase) will be refunded at the time of shipping.
