Morris & Co. embroidery kits were sold with the design painted onto soft cotton cloth, known as ‘Manchester cloth’.This has a suitably open weave, allowing embroiderers to define the design with stem stitch and cover areas of ground quickly with darning stitch using the silk threads or ‘twist’ supplied by Morris & Co from their Merton Abbey workshops. Sufficient thread to complete the design was supplied wrapped in tissue paper bundles.
