Aida is sold in different ‘counts’. The count refers to the number of stitches you can make in an inch. The metric equivalent is pts/cm - stitches per centimetre. Therefore, the higher the count the smaller stitches you will make resulting in a finer finish. We recommend beginners use 14-count/5.5pts which is the most popular aïda in our range.
Care instructions: remember to take into account the care instructions for all threads and fabrics used in your project. DMC Aida can be washed at 60°C with mild detergent and pressed using a pressing cloth on a low heat setting.
