    @elliskh I use a size 8 punch so that may make it a bit easier, I also use a pretty chunky wool. If it isn’t tight enough on the frame it just doesn’t hold anything, so I make sure to have it on as tight as possible before starting. I haven’t used anything else so I don’t know how it compares to other fabrics. - 6 months ago

    I found one at Walmart that I hated...too loose. - 6 months ago

    @elliskh I played with it very briefly tonight. The one on the left works better for sure. The one on the right does hold better with chunky yarn. I’ll play with it more in the next days and see what I can figure out. 👍 - 6 months ago

    @sb.contemporary how do you get it work??? It always comes apart and my punches won't stay or work. I use a size 10 oxford needle. - 6 months ago

    The one on the right NEVER WORKS for me. Please master it and tell me what I am doing wrong. It pulls apart and I can't punch. - 6 months ago

    I use the one on the right, but was literally sitting in Joanne’s trying to choose between the two. Would love to see a comparison vid💗 - 6 months ago

    @storytellerwool thanks! I found these by the cross stitching area at half off so I figured for the cheap price I’d give them a whirl! I’ve had quite a bit of success with the burlap actually but it’s so scratchy on my hands. Everything online seems so mixed on what it is or it’s not even labeled with details on how many holes per inch it is 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ - 6 months ago

    There are a few fabrics named monk’s cloth, it can be so confusing that they share the same name, but are totally different fabrics! The fabrics shown are for cross stitch and embroidery type crafts. Rug hooking monk’s cloth has more threads per inch, smaller holes and a nice stretch to it. Rug hooking monk’s cloth is not carried in local craft stores. Maybe some day they will, but right now they don’t. That being said you can punch with these fabrics, but your loops will easily slip out and it won’t work as well. I liked how white the cloths were and bought some myself hoping I could make it work. Nothing punches like the real thing. - 6 months ago
