Hand Embroidery Fabric Stitchables 22ct Hardanger

Hardanger needlework is typically done on 22-count cotton evenweave Hardanger fabric, which is a type of linen with a square weave that makes it easy to count the threads. The fabric is also relatively stiff, which helps to keep the stitches in place. The thread used is typically a six-strand embroidery floss, although other types of thread can also be used depending on the desired effect. Hardanger embroidery technique comes from the Hardanger region of Norway.
