Sometimes I use Bockens linen (I am using it on my current piece). But I have also used Klippans Vavlin, Fresia and Fawcett's (the latter company no longer exists). I also use cottons for my embroidery, preferably single strand indivisible threads such as DMC Coton a Broder, or pearl, or similar threads by Anchor & Mez. Sometimes I use good quality crochet cottons like DMC Cebelia or Cordonnet. I never used stranded embroidery floss for my pulled thread because it isn't strong enough, and I don't like it for Hardanger because it is too hard to control the separate threads. They don't stay together too well. I love the feel of linen and I like the slubbiness. I think the irregularities it creates add character to a piece.
I went to your blog to look for photos of your work, but the images were so small I could not see any detail. I'm sorry I don't know Japanese, so I couldn't figure out how to get larger images. I would love to see pictures. It sounds as if your interests are exactly like mine.
Please join the pulled thread/drawn thread group in stitchinfingers. Look for "groups" on the top line of this page, find pulled thread/drawn thread. Joining is easy. I have been collecting photos from our other members. You might like to see.
