The most common type of fabric used for cross stitching is Aida cloth.
Aida cloth is an open, even-weave fabric traditionally used for cross-stitch embroidery. This cotton fabric has a natural mesh that facilitates cross-stitching and enough natural stiffness that the stitcher does not need to use an embroidery hoop.
We can supply DMC or Anchor stranded cottons in their standard range of colours. Specialized types such as variegated or metallics can be purchased from our sister website, www.ozstitch.com.au
