Hardanger Linen

by Rico

Hardanger Linen by Rico is a range of quality hemmed linen especially designed and prepared for Hardanger embroidery.

Hardanger embroidery or “Hardangersøm” is a form of embroidery traditionally worked with white thread on white even-weave linen or cloth, using counted thread and drawn thread work techniques. It is sometimes called whitework embroidery.  However, for a more modern look, a lot of embroiderers are making the most of variegated or multi colored threads to really show off the Hardanger designs.

Hardanger fabric is a 100% cotton block weave. It has 22 threads to the inch which lay in pairs. The holes are less obvious than in Aida.

Satin stitch is the basic Hardanger embroidery stitch.  The kloster block is the foundation and is formed with satin stitches. They are done in blocks of five satin stitches which cover four fabric threads. The designs are geometric and form the border of the area to be cut. Your kloster blocks can be either in a stair-step (diagonal) pattern or in a straight line.

Hardanger Embroidery is a combination of many different types of needlework including cutwork, drawn work, and needle weaving. While some people are very reluctant to try Hardanger Embroidery, it can easily be mastered if you have some patience and can count!

As well as being used for Hardanger this material can be used for cross stitch and blackwork. Cross stitch can be worked over 2 blocks, effectively creating an 11 count fabric.
