Probably an overkill for your particular need, but software package Artlandia provides a hatching function. You can specify the distance between lines, hatch direction and optionally the starting point and number of lines. By overlapping several hatchings you can create textures. An example is given at http://www.artlandia.com/software/at_a_glance/, scroll way down; the name of the function is (you've guessed it) Hatch.
