    Couple of things to consider: On the 28 count fabric, is the stitching done over one thread or over two threads? 28 count means there are 28 squares (threads) to the inch. If it's done 28 count over 2 threads, that is comparable to 14 count. 25 count and 22 count means that is the number of squares (threads). So you can figure out the fabric from those calculations. Does that help? Go to top
