100% cotton monks cloth fabric for punch needle / rug hooking.
Monks cloth is a foundation fabric which is predominantly used for punch needle and rug hooking. The fabric is intended for use with the adjustable punch needle (for sale in my other listings) as well as the #10 regular Oxford punch needle.
It is a loose, even weave, cotton fabric which is durable and flexible when used with a punch needle. It is perfect for beginners as the fabric is very forgiving, allowing you to pull out your stitches (frogging) and re-punch over the same part of fabric. The fabric has 12-14 holes per inch with white guidelines every 2 inches which can be used to ensure that your pattern is still aligned when stretched.
The fabric is available in different sizes:
- 50 cm x 150cm (approx 1/2 metre)
- 100 cm x 150cm (approx 1 metre)
Monks cloth is prone to fraying, it is recommended that once you receive your fabric you secure the edges. You can do this by using an overlocker (serger), a sewing machine or by using masking tape.

Please note that I have tried to represent the colours of the yarn as accurately as possible, however differences in colour may occur due to monitor displays or computer settings.
