Monk's cloth (by the piece, serged) (FREE SHIPPING!)
The most popular backing for punch needle rug hooking, this 100% cotton monk's cloth is suitable for use with all sizes of Oxford Punch Needles. Also great for traditional rug hooking. Woven with a white line every two inches to help you position your pattern and stretch it evenly on your frame. Approximately 12 double threads per inch. Edges have been serged to prevent fraying.
(I usually allow 4-5 inches around the frame so I can pull the monk's cloth tight. So, if you are using an 18" x 18" frame the 24" x 24" piece of monk's cloth has plenty of extra monk's cloth to ensure it is tightly pulled onto the frame.)
