Trammed Tapestry/Needlepoint Kit - Lupin Spray Cushion (Lupinus)
The wools provided with this canvas are enough to complete the Tramme area and should be used double thickness. You may need to buy additional yarn, to suit your colour scheme or taste, to complete the outer border to the size required. This design can be used as a cushion front or chair/stool cover. Please read the full description below before committing to buy.
What is 'Tramme?'
Tramme, pronounced tram'me or tra-may, also spelt Tramé (commonly referred to as trammed). Tramme is a traditional type of tapestry (or needlepoint) on which the design is laid out on the canvas using horizontal, long-stitched, lines of 2 ply wool yarn. This is done by hand through the small holes, on the 'Penelope' double thread canvas, in the appropriate colours, instead of being painted or printed. This makes it very easy to work out which colour of wool to use, working through the larger holes in the normal way using half-cross stitch with the yarns included. This form of needlework is ideally suited to furnishing uses (cushions/pillows, chair/stool seats and backs) because of its hard wearing properties.
Tramme Design Size: 37 x 37cm (14.6 x 14.6in)

You will need to stitch this project on a sturdy needlework frame to keep the work taught, we would recommend a rotating tapestry frame. The kit is packed in a re-sealable plastic bag to enable you to keep all your threads together.
We will be stocking an increasing number of Tramme designs, but the range will change from time to time, please ask if you can’t find that special design, or size, you are looking for. This canvas is from the Martin Winkler collection in Germany.
