Blackwork is a form of counted-thread embroidery, where the warp and weft yarns of a fabric are counted for the length of each stitch, producing uniform-length stitches and a precise pattern on an even-weave fabric. Most commonly, it is worked in black thread but other colours are used on occasion.
