The best cloth for creating your punch needle rugs
Popess cloth, is the deluxe fabric that we recommend for large formats such as rugs. It does not fray and its behaviour is very stable: it does not warp and keeps its weft. This makes it the perfect fabric for punching large formats such as rugs. A high performance punch needle cloth!
You can also use Abbess cloth. It is also a strong, versatile, hard-wearing, open weave fabric that won’t fray! However, for larger formats it requires more frequent tensioning because it is a little less stiff than the Popess cloth.
Why don’t we include Monk cloth in the punch needle kits?
Monk cloth is indeed the most popular cloth, but in practice, it is an uncomfortable cloth to work with.
It has 3 major disadvantages. First, it frays so you have to tape the entire perimeter of the piece before working with it. It deforms easily so when undoing stitches the fabric does not recover and it is difficult to punch again with the risk of loops coming loose. Finally, it does not support any sewing option, either by hand or by machine. This fact limiting considerably the formats to be created.

The handle is ergonomic and made of maple wood; the tip is made of electro-polished steel thanks to a great work of matrix engineering.
