Standard Hoops

Round or rectangular — plastic or wood

Standard hoops made of plastic or wood have been the standard in embroidery for decades. By now they exist in a huge variety of sizes and shapes. They are suitable for almost all materials, except for very thick materials.

Advantages of standard hoops

Low-cost purchase

Thanks to their technical simplicity and the large quantities in which they are produced, the standard hoops are relatively inexpensive to purchase. This makes them ideal when starting embroidery. Melco customers receive a standard set of such hoops free with every new embroidery machine.

Strong tension

With the help of the adjustable outer ring, almost all garments, except for very thick material, can be excellently hooped. This creates a strong tension on the material, which is essential for the quality of the embroidery.

Round hoops provide uniform tension

Because in a round hoop the centre is the same distance from the edge in all directions, the tension on the textile is absolutely even. This helps you to achieve consistently good quality throughout the entire embroidery area.

What standard hoops are there?

Round hoops

The Round hoops are available in the following sizes:

  • Hoop round 9 cm
  • Hoop round 12 cm
  • Hoop round 15 cm
  • Hoop round 18 cm
  • Hoop round 22 cm

*Note: The dimensions indicate the diameter of the inside of the hoop without the safety zone. The actual sew field is approx. 3 cm smaller.

Rectangular hoops

The rectangular hoops are available in the following sizes:

  • Hoop 11.5 x 11.5 cm
  • Hoop 14 x 14 cm
  • Hoop 19 x 19 cm
  • Hoop 15 x 30 cm / 30 x 15 cm (rotatable)
  • Hoop 24 x 24 cm
  • Hoop 30 x 30 cm
  • Hoop 36 x 30 cm
  • Hoop 44 x 30 cm

*Note: The dimensions indicate the diameter of the inside of the hoop without the safety zone. The actual sew field is approx. 3 cm smaller.

Wooden embroidery hoops

Since plastic does not offer enough stability from a certain size of the hoop, there are wooden hoops. These function exactly the same, but are larger and more stable because they have a natural grain. These are available in the following sizes:

  • Wooden embroidery hoop 43 x 43 cm (sew field 38 x 38 cm)
  • Wooden embroidery hoop 53 x 43 cm (sew field 41 x 39 cm)
