Monk Cloth


Suggested Uses

Monks Cloth, a fabric that goes back to the 40's for use in curtains, is now very much in demand for Swedish/Huck Weaving crafts. Because of it's heavy weight and soft feel, it makes an excellent Afghan throw.

For ideas using this cloth visit, All Fiber Arts

Monks cloth is an even weave fabric, 100% cotton, 60 wide, 7 count (4 floats per inch) Monks cloth has floats going in both directions, so you can work your design either way. Monks cloth has to be pre-shrunk before you start to stitch. I cannot stress that enough, because there is significant shrinkage. Zigzag the edges of the fabric to keep it from unraveling. Machine wash the prepared fabric with detergent in warm water. You can use fabric softener. Dry the fabric in the dryer. Sources canft agree on the temperature setting. Some say hot, others say medium or low heat. Recommendation is you dry it on the setting you would normally dry it on when you when you wash it later. Depending on the manufacturer, you will see a 4-6" shrinkage per yard. We recommend you purchase 2 1/2 yards for an afghan and 1 2/3 yards for a baby blanket. Monks cloth is great for afghans, lap robes, runners, and placemats. It is also an alternative for folks who want to continue to stitch, but their eye sight has declined significantly. There are many ways to finish an afghan, such as hemming and fringing.
