Martin Winkler Tramme Tapestry/Needlepoint Kit - Anemones
The wools provided with this canvas are enough to complete the Tramme area and should be used double thickness. You will need to buy additional yarn, to suit your colour scheme or taste, to complete the outer border to the size required. This design can be used as a cushion front or chair/stool cover. Please read the full description below before committing to buy.
What is 'Tramme'
Tramme, pronounced tram'me or tra-may, also spelt Tramé (commonly referred to as trammed). Tramme is a traditional type of tapestry (or needlepoint) on which the design is laid out on the canvas using horizontal, long-stitched, lines of 2 ply wool yarn. This is done by hand through the small holes, on the 'Penelope' double thread canvas, in the appropriate colours, instead of being painted or printed. This makes it very easy to work out which colour of wool to use, working through the larger holes in the normal way using half-cross stitch with the yarns included. This form of needlework is ideally suited to furnishing uses (cushions/pillows, chair/stool seats and backs) because of it's hard wearing properties.
