Foundation Cloths for Punch Needle Craft

My favourite fabrics for your craft.

Monks cloth is one of foundation cloths for punch needle craft

Dorr Mill Monks Cloth is designed and made for Punch Needle Rug Hooking. It is beige with white strips every 2 inches. The ideal monks cloth to use has 12-14 holes per inch, so beware when buying monks cloth online as not all monks cloth is the same. Monks cloth is a very forgiving cloth, you can rip out your work again and again and again until you are happy with it, and the monks cloths thread can simply be put back into place with the tip of your Punch Needle.

Wool is one of foundation cloths for punch needle craft

Did you know that you can punch directly into wool fabric with an Oxford Punch Needle? Well you can!! A lot of my cushions are made by punching directly into wool fabric, the beauty of this is you don’t have to punch a background. However, be warned, wool fabric is not as forgiving as monks cloth, so you really only get about 2 chances before you create a hole! I source my wool fabric from a local mill and generally they are off cuts, random sizes, so I will post these as they come up. It feeds into my ethos of reuse, giving something new life again.

I love the smell, the touch, the feel of different textures, the colours that feed my soul and inspire creativity.
