Abbess cloth: the fabric par excellence
Abbess cloth, is for the Punch woman whose creativity knows no bounds. It is a strong, versatile, resistant, open weave fabric (but less so than Monk cloth) and does not fray! It is perfect if you want to make cushions, toiletry bags, dolls, etc. because it facilitates any work with a needle or a sewing machine. Also, if you’re thinking of a punchy with exposed areas, the Abbess cloth is the right one for you. It is a fabric for demanding and experienced punchers.

The Monk cloth is the most popular fabric but in practice it is an uncomfortable cloth to work with:
- It frays, so you have to tape the entire perimeter of the piece before working with it,
- It deforms easily so when you undo stitches the fabric does not recover and it is difficult to re-punch with the risk of loops coming loose,
- It does not support any sewing option, either by hand or by machine, limiting considerably the formats to be created
