Crewel work is a style of embroidery that dates back hundreds of years. Instead of cotton thread, crewel work uses wool yarn. This gives the pieces a richness and depth that cannot be achieved with thinner threads. The ladies of Queen Elizabeth's court would embroider tapestries and their seamstress would embroider their gowns. Over the years since, everything from bed linens to jean jackets has seen embellishment from a needle.
