At Last... Hand Dyed Rug Binding Wool!
In my never-ending quest to provide quality materials to the rug hooking community, I've finally found a terrific 100% wool yarn to dye in colors to compliment my hand dyed rug hooking wool collection.
Initially, I'm offering this in the most popular colors used for backgrounds by my customers but you can also special order the wool dyed to match any of the hand dyed colors on my website.
This sturdy, 3-ply wool is the perfect weight for whipping and finishing the edges of your beautiful hooked rugs. This is not a bulky wool as many 3-plys can be... It's more the weight of a good worsted knitting yarn. It also has a bit more heft than the needlepoint wool we so often use because we can't find something better.
Use one or two strands in a large tapestry needle to whip over either a traditional corded rug edge (my favorite finish) or an edge that has been folded over itself a couple of times. Add twill tape seam binding on the back and you have a perfectly finished rug!
Available in 4 oz. (about 130 yards) quantities.
Our wool kits* for our appliqué designs are created especially for each design and are carefully prepared with ample wool to complete your project. The wools in the kit will generally not be the same wools used to stitch the original and are intended to give a look similar to, but not the same as, the original. Keep in mind that the photograph accompanying the pattern is meant as a guide only; your piece will be uniquely your own.
* Please note: Unless noted otherwise in the product description, our kits do not include threads, non-wool fabrics called for in the design, buttons, or other non-wool items.
