Our 100% linen is a 28-count fabric. The count refers to the number of stitches you can make in an inch. The metric equivalent is pts/cm - stitches per centimetre. Therefore, the higher the count the smaller stitches you will make resulting in a finer finish.
When using this fabric for cross stitch it is common to ‘stitch over two’ meaning each stitch crosses over two warp and two weft threads.
Care instructions: remember to take into account the care instructions for all threads and fabrics used in your project. DMC Linen can be washed at 40°C with mild detergent and ironed on setting 2. Do not bleach or tumble dry.
