Pulled Thread stitches are different from all others. In most embroidery you want to avoid pulling your floss so tight that it distorts or moves the canvas/fabric threads. In Pulled Thread work, however, it is the distortion of the canvas which you are trying to achieve. In fact often Pulled Thread work is done as white on white work and displayed with a contrasting fabric placed behind. It can be the holes created by the stitches more than the stitches themselves that are to be appreciated.
