I'm new to the world of needlework and embroidery, and I'm a bit confused about the difference between crewel and embroidery cotton fabric. I've seen both being used for different projects, but I'm not sure what sets them apart.
I recently started working on an embroidery project using cotton fabric, but I've heard that crewel is a great choice for embroidery as well. Is there a specific type of project that crewel is better suited for? Or is it just a matter of personal preference?
I would really appreciate it if someone could shed some light on this and help me understand the key differences between the two types of fabrics. Thank you in advance!
