Frequently Asked Questions:
What is Punch Needle?
There are two types of punch needle crafts: rug punch needle and punch needle embroidery.
Both use their own special punch needle tool to punch loops of fiber (yarn or floss) through a
foundation fabric to make wall hangings, pillows, and many other decorative and useful item
for the home.
Rug punch needle uses yarn (usually wool) and monks cloth, a fabric with a fairly coarse
weave, for the foundation fabric. Rug punch needle is best used for larger projects such as
rugs and large pillows.
Punch needle embroidery uses smaller fibers such as embroidery floss and weavers cloth, a
tightly woven cotton polyester blend fabric, for the foundation fabric. Punch needle
embroidery is best used for small projects.
