Blank Needlepoint Canvas - Mono

  • This is a single mesh canvas which means it is woven with a single thread.
  • The threads are woven over and under each other in a typical weaving pattern and held together at the junction by sizing (starch).
  • Mono blank needlepoint canvas is a good choice for stitching projects that are going to be used as furnishings, such as chair cushions. The mono canvas will "give" at the junctions rather than break under wear and tear conditions.
  • Available in  10 mesh through 18 mesh for needlepoint.
  • Available in white or brown.

  • Penelope is a double thread canvas which makes it strong and the best choice for furnishings and projects that will get a lot of wear and tear.
  • With a penelope canvas you can stitch all the holes (this is called petit point) or you can just stitch the big holes (gros point). Most stitchers stitch a penelope needlepoint canvas doing both - they stitch the small holes for the detailed areas of the design, and the large holes using a thicker thread for the background.
  • Penelope blank needlepoint canvas is only available in size 10/20 - this is 10 holes to the inch if you are only counting the big holes (gros point), or 20 holes to the inch if you are counting all the holes (petit point).
  • Color is brown.
