Tvistsom is a folk art technique that originated in Sweden during the 17th and 18th centuries. It has had a long history throughout all the Scandinavian countries with the best known examples coming from the province of Skane in the southern part of Sweden. Traditionally it was stitched on a canvas with a "tvist" weave, a loose tabby weave. Because of the durability of the stitching, many examples survived such as sleigh rugs, cushions and household furnishings. Today a wider array of materials are available and the prjojects can be done on ground fabrics ranging from 7-count to 25-count evenweave. The principle stitch is the long arm cross stitch. 16 pages. The learning project is the Swedish Tvistsom Trivet.
