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.
Peony flowers feature in a lot of Jacobean designs, showing the influence of Eastern style on British fashion in the 17th century.
