Specially designed for cross stitch, our pre-cut aïda is 100% cotton. Composed of blocks of threads with a perfectly square weave. The clearly recognisable squares make it easy for beginners and professionals alike to create neat, regular stitches.

About this product

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.
