Interlock or leno canvas is woven with figure-eight, single thread, interlock weave and comes in many mesh sizes. It is best suited for self-finished items, pictures, or curve-shaped small items that will be hand finished. It is not as strong or durable as mono canvas, and is usually sewn together for finishing with the binding stitch. This type of canvas has no grain (making it "harder" to use the basketweave stitch).
