We know a bit about the types of embroidery patches. Let's get on to the fabrics that are used in making those patches. There are so many different types and blends of materials in the market. Does it matter which fabric type you embroider your designs on? It does, and there are several reasons why.
Not every fabric is fit for embroidery. Some natural fabrics with a sturdy built and tight weave, like linen, silk, and wool, are the best fabrics for machine and hand embroidery. The construction of such materials ensures a durable surface that easily supports decorative designs and stitching.
One of the best backing materials for patches is felt. Felt fabric is crafted by matting and compressing fibers together to form a fabric sheet. The best type of felt is made from natural wool.
