Frames for Punching
Which type of Punch Needle Frame to choose?
Punching frames makes the craft so much easier and enjoyable. At WildWoolWay, I offer two types of frames. Choose between Gripper Frames and Hoops to get started!
Handmade frames offer the best quality punch needle experience and are perfect for professionals.
Morgan hoops have a special tongue and groove grip which keeps your fabric taut.
A gripper strip frame definitely gives one of the best experiences when using your punch needle. It holds your foundation cloth as tight as a drum. Your punch needle glides into the monks cloth or whatever foundation cloth you are using, this results in even loop sizes being created and makes punch needle a far more enjoyable experience.
Protective covering is required on a gripper strip frame as the gripper strips are quite sharp.
Gripper Punch Needle Frame
Punch Needle Frames made with Gripper Strips in my opinion are the best of all punching frames. Gripper strip frames keep the fabric as tight as a drum.
These Gripper Frames are made in West Cork. I attach the gripper strips to the frame, sand and wax the frame to give you a lovely smooth frame.
For all fabrics
The Morgan Hoops are plastic rings that hold the fabric in place. The Morgan Hoops have a durable locking system and a special lip and channel system on the inside of the hoop. This prevents your fabric getting loose. Perfect for all kinds of needle work and a good alternative to the gripper.
