Oval hoops are an unusual shape, however when held they do just fit into the curves of your palms making them a favorite of embroiderers. Another good feature of this particular hoop is the ability to stitch borders. Notice the heavier tightening screw compared to other hoops. We recommend placing the screw at the 11 o'clock position, which prevents your threads from catching on it as you stitch. This is a 5/16" width hoop.
Our Selection of Hoops
Access Commodities stocks a comprehensive selection of wooden hoops enabling one to perform a wide range of hand embroidery techniques. All of the hoops made of beechwood, come in a range of diameter sizes including : 5/16", 5/8"and 7/8".
The fine, 5/16 inch width slender hoops are for light weight fabrics such as batiste and cambric. These are best for embroidering monograms, raised embroidery slips, or any kind of fancywork.
The 5/8 inch width medium hoop is recommended for medium weight linens, and fine woolens. The size is a comfortable weight in your hand.
The 7/8 inch width is recommended for heavier upholstery weight fabrics, and is actually my favorite for crewel work.
To protect your embroidery fabric from marking, please wrap the hoop with twill or bias tape. Access Commodities has white twill tape
in three widths: 3/8”, 1/2” and 3/4”.
