This foundation fabric is an absolute dream to punch with! It’s a sturdy, 100% cotton fabric with a nice loose weave (about 12 holes per inch). It’s quite unique as far as fabrics go, because it’s hardwearing enough to allow you to punch down with oomph, and the fabric makes way for your needle and almost hugs the stitches as you punch along. This means it’s perfect for newbies at punch needle, but also for confident makers.
What punch needle does this cloth work well with? This count monk’s cloth works perfectly with our ‘Chunky’ size punch needles (the Oxford #10 Regular and Lavor Chunky). It’s also lovely to use with our ‘Medium’ size punch needles (the Oxford # 10 Fine and Lavor Medium). You can use it with the ABCD Adjustable punch needle too.
You can buy it as a cut square, with overlocked edges to help prevent fraying:
35 x 35 cm (suits 8”-10” hoops)
