Cross-stitch on even-weave fabric, Hungary
, mid-20th century
Even-weave fabric or canvas is any woven textile where the warp and weft threads are of the same size.
Fabrics and uses
Even-weave fabrics include even-weave aida cloth, linen, and needlepoint canvas. These fabrics are typically required as foundations for counted-thread embroidery styles such as blackwork, cross-stitch, and needlepoint, so that a stitch of the same "count" (that is, crossing the same number of fabric threads) will be the same length whether it crosses warp or weft threads.
