FACTS & HISTORY: Crewel embroidery, or crewelwork, is a type of surface embroidery using wool. A wide variety of different embroidery stitches are used to follow a design outline applied to the fabric. The technique is at least a thousand years old.
Crewel embroidery is not identified with particular styles of designs, but rather is embroidery with the use of this wool thread. Modern crewel wool is a fine, two-ply or one-ply yarn available in many different colors. Crewel embroidery is often associated with England in the 17th and 18th centuries, and from England was carried to the American colonies. It is particularly popular in New England states.
