Aida fabric is certainly the single most popular cross stitch fabric. The name "Aida" refers to a particular weave of the fabric that was invented by Zweigart in 1908.
Aida is generally made from 100% cotton, and it comes in several different counts as large as Herta (6 count) and as fine as 20 count. Herta is often used for teaching children or beginners to cross stitch because it is easy to see. 18 and 20 count fabrics are for more experienced cross stitchers that are looking for a finer or more detailed look to their piece.
The fabric is made by little squares with four holes at the corners. The stitches are formed using these holes. It is available in many different counts, but the most common are 14, 16 and 18 count, that means respectively 14,16 and 18 stitches per inch - so, the higher is the count, the smaller will be your work.
Fractional stitches (1/4 stitches and 3/4 stitches ) can be much easier to do on an evenweave material. On Aida, the needle needs to punch through the middle of the little square in order to complete the stitch.
