The term ‘crewel work’ means embroidery with crewel wool threads on any fabric. The word ‘Jacobean’ describes the style of the design - influenced by English crewel work designs of the early 17th century. Jacobean crewel work is always stitched on natural-coloured pure linen twill fabric.
Leaves like this one form an integral part of the Tree of Life motif seen frequently in Jacobean design.
This design fits a 5" (12 cm) ring frame. It is a perfect introduction to Jacobean for beginners.

In the pack you get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results.
Kit contains: linen twill fabric, crewel wool, needles, design and full instructions
