Default trammed needlepoint?

i don't think i've seen a good definition of trammed tapestries-i saw several
beautiful designs on the web from beverly designs(?not too sure of the
designer) i think they are stitched some way with wool before you recieve
them-does one stitch over this-or is this the type one just colors in the
backround?i've only dabbled in needlepoint(simple inexpensive kits) but i
would love to do a very nice inticate floral-and there was at least 4 designs
on the web that i would love to own!
TIA!
P.S. does anyone know a source for these in the US-the site i visited is in the
uk and i would like to keep postage down if possibleg
take care and keep stitching!

Nan is correct; the design is stitched in long and short horizontal stitches with the exact color that needs to be used over top. The trammed canvases can be harder to work as opposed to a chart or graph because sometimes the shades of one color are so close that you cannot distinguish which color should be applied. I am working on a Sonia Chapell Needlepoint Collection design that I bought on ebay 2 years ago. I have found it to be difficult to work because of this and also a big chunk of the palest pink yard for the rose was omitted from the kit (the yarn was still sealed in the bag untouched).

Tramme means "weft" which may indicate the direction it is stitched (left to right/right to left or just plain horizontal). This will most likely be my last tramme; it was a bit frustrating... Chris
