Allied wood embroidery hoops, frames are engineered to provide superior grip when hooping wide range of thin to thick fabrics. One natural characteristics of wood is its grained texture which enables more effective hooping of most articles & fabrics. This characteristic is also great for framing slippery fabrics such as satins and silks, as well as for thicker jackets that may be difficult to hoop tautly using regular plastic hoops.
Allied wooden embroidery frames are available in "single height" (SH) and "double height" (DH). This is designated by SH or DH in the Allied Item Numbers below (e.g. AWH-000000-SH-SWF-360). The added thickness of double height wooden hoops provides additional surface area to hold fabric tautly. This is extremely advantageous when framing very thick articles.
Allied’s wide range of wooden embroidery hoops includes specialty shapes and sizes such as hoops for long and narrow embroidery designs on sleeves of long-sleeved shirts, pant legs, etc. Beyond Allied's currently available hoop sizes, if you need custom-sized wooden hoops in larger quantities, please contact us providing details of your specific requirements.

The most common Arm Spacing (AS) set-up used on SWF industrial tubular embroidery machines is 360 mm (approx. 14")
Some machine models allow a wider AS setting for a larger embroidery field of 400 mm (approx 15.5")
Certain compact machine models have an AS setting of 450 mm (approx 17.5")
All newer machines and select older machines also allow for an AS setting of 500 mm (approx 19.5")
