Stramin Double Thread Canvas
Stramin Double Thread Canvas is particularly suited to Tapestry style needlepoint where you wish to add additional detail by working some of the pattern in the finer petite point stitch.
Available in White 15, 18 or 21 Count (holes per inch)
Stramin Double Thread Canvas enables the use of both petite point (small needlepoint stitches) and gros point (large needlepoint stitches) on the same design. Stramin Double Thread Canvas is made of a slightly lighter weight than mono needlepoint canvas which allows the stitcher to separate the pairs of threads with your needle and make it into mono canvas within the same project. Perfect for adding fine detail or introducing feature threads in silks or metallic threads to highlight the picture or pattern.
