Explaining the Differences Between Various Cross Stitch Fabrics


Hi, this is Nikki from crossstichsupplies.co.za and I'm here with a few pieces of fabric
to show you the differences between them.

Here we have Aida which is what we usually get in SA. It's made up of little squares
with big holes. Here's a close up view for you. And that's what we typically get but with
crossstitchsupplies.co.za we've decided to bring you some even weaves.
Even weaves are slightly smaller fibres so you stitch over two but your stitches end up the same
size as with the Aida. Let me show you. It's much smoother. This is Joblin 28 count. It's much softer,
it's got a lot more cotton in it, so it takes the dye in a very blended way. I'ts very soft and very beautiful.

And then we have 28 count Opal Lugana. The difference between this and Joblin is that this has got the
sparkle thread woven through it. So you can see that it picks up that little bit of shimmer. And that's why
it's a little bit more expensive. It is a slightly stiffer fabric than the Joblin but it holds your stitches
very nicely, very neatly. It's very easy to stitch on as is the Joblin.

Thank you very much.
