The best fabric for cross stitch other than even weave fabric and aida is Linen. Linen and evenweave look almost the same. Linen has small slubs in its surface but this wouldnot look so obvious once cross stitches are made. Linen has a beauty unparalleled as well as the weave is very apparent which makes it best for this embroidery.

You can cross stitch on different kinds of evenweave fabric. It may be evenweave linen, Aida cloth, waste canvas etc. It is largely a matter of your personal preference.
Just remember: the number of stitches per inch (or per cm) can drastically change the look of your ready project.
Fabric with a higher stitch will produce smaller and finer designs.
