Wasn't there a discussion of these earlier? I seem to recall a lot of
speculation about 80 EPI linen and stitching over 4 threads for 20 stitches
per inch.. (but it might have been another piece entirely- my ol' grey
memory ain't what it used to be..)

While at the V&A I counted fourteen stitches to the inch.  I don't
remember if it was "evenweave", It's been a while and I'm not sure
where the notes are.
