Colors available from Yarn Tree.

Cashel Linen is usually stitched over 2 threads. So even though Cachel Linen is 28 threads per inch, it stitches as though it where 14 count. Your pattern may say 'over two' (that is, stitch over 2 threads); or '2 by 2', or '2 over 2' (that is, stitch 2 strands of floss over 2 fabric threads).

The linen threads in Cashel Linen are intentionally uneven in diameter. In an unstitched piece of fabric this variation may look like flaws, but it is what gives your finished piece personality.


Beginner suggestions: Although not difficult to stitch on, linen fabric is usually not recommended for your first project (aida would be the best choice for a first project). Our Yarn Tree site has  Learn To Cross Stitch In 5 Minutes instructions. There is also a video.
