These days doing comparisons of threads against each other is being seen more often. For us as stitchers, this is fantastic. Few of us have the breadth of stash to make these comparisons. If we have the thread stash, we don’t have the time or the canvases to stitch them.
Even so, we still find ourselves wondering if we are picking the right thread for this stitch or for this mesh.
The folks over at Needlepoint for Fun is here to help us. She has been stitching this lovely JulieMar landscape and using several different wool and wool blend threads. She’s written a fantastic blog post talking about her choices and, est of all, what did not work. You’ll get a wonderful look at what these threads can do and how they can work together.
