Pulled Thread

Pulled thread embroidery is a form of whitework, where threads are pulled tightly together to form designs.

Pulled thread stitches are normally stitched on a relatively open evenweave fabric.

N.B. Some authors use the term ‘drawn thread’ for what we call pulled thread stitches - see the entry for drawn thread stitches.
