How to Use

The term evenweave refers to the fabric having an even number of weft and warp threads per inch. Warp threads run the entire length of the fabric, while the weft threads run side-to-side, from selvage to selvage.  The thread count for evenweave fabrics is determined by this number – for example, 25-count Evenweave fabric has 25 vertical warp threads and 25 horizontal weft threads per inch of fabric. The higher the count number the finer and closer the weave will be. These fabrics are generally stitched over and up 2 threads for counted cross stitch.  The common term for this technique is simply called “over two threads.”
