Have had lots of posts about what is the true linen I've used for Lizzie Kate's "6 Fat Men". I am using the linen that was called for in the pattern. I mislabelled the color in my first post, so here is all the information about the linen for all the inquiring minds:
The linen color is: Amber (not Mocha like I had written in the "snow friends" post- SORRY!)
It comes in 28 ct. and 32 ct. (mine is 28 ct.)
It is by Wichelt
The linen is very stiff...but that is why the stitching looks 3-Dimensional as it is fabulous as far as holding the stitches and maintaining and even tension with the stitches. (Which I got smacked on the hand about by the Fair Judge this summer - that I had areas of "uneven tension" in my stitching....which I think was due to the fabric but...I'm trying to become a better stitcher so am paying extra close attention to my stitches and their tension - this fabric makes it very easy to have perfect stitches). And may I also say, the stiffness and almost like slippery surface making picking the stitches out (which I had a large experience with on Snow Friends) very easy too!
:) Happy Stitching!
