British Wooden Embroidery Hoop
A beautiful wooden embroidery hoop with quality brass screw.
Perfect for holding fabric under some tension whilst darning or patching over holes and threadbare areas.
Using an embroidery hoop is a light-weight alternative to using a darning mushroom or disk.
It holds the fabric taut at all times and gives you the flexibility to adjust the tension with a simple twist of the screw.
- Twist the metal screw at the top to loosen the inner hoop from the outer hoop.
- Place the inner hoop on the table and lay the fabric over the top. Try to align the hole with the centre of the hoop.
- Next, pop the outer hoop over the top of the fabric and inner hoop. Tighten the screw until the inner hoop and fabric are secure.
- If the fabric looks a little too loose or overstretched, then adjust the tension using the screw. You may also need to pull on the fabric to make it tighter.
Note: For use with stretch fabrics stabilise the fabric first using Steam-2-Seam or something similar.
Made in the U.K by Elbesee.
Each hoop is carefully crafted from close-grain beech wood and finished with a little wax polish.
This hoop is plastic free and supplied without any additional packaging, however when I purchase these in bulk (pack of 5) they are delivered to me wrapped in a small amount of shrink wrap that I sadly have to dispose of.
Two sizes are available:
- 4" / 10 cm
- 6" / 15 cm
For best results and ease of use choose a hoop that is larger than the hole you're planning to repair.
