Item details

Request custom order to add a starter rug for another $3. I have been demonstrating toothbrush rugs for over 25 years. Each needle is handmade by me and no two are exactly alike but all work equally the same. If you have a preference as far as wide or narrow, long or shorter just send me a message with your order. Although there are many instructions and youtubes on doing these wonderful recycled rugs I found all more complicated then it really is. This method predates crochet and knitting and there is only one basic stitch. For this reason I have written my own (5 page) The Standard Needle Instructions that begin with a little history about Nålebinding/toothbrush rugs and rag rugs. You can make beautiful washable rugs from those old worn out sheets and outdated clothes. Although my standard needles are designed for toothbrush rugs I can make them in other shapes to be more like the narrow ones used with wool yarn ( listed separately, these traditional needles are best used with yarn or wool as they do not withstand the tugging of rags),
Needles will be random in size and width, if you message me please just give a general size as I do not make these exact sizes but will try to meet your needs!!!! Everyone has a different size hand and how they prefer their needle. If you do not contact me they average between 1/2 & 3/4 in wide and 3.5 and 4.5 in long. You can chose from many different hardwoods and chose a regular hole (for average 2" cotton strips) or Large for (denim or corduroy type fabrics) All needles are made by me starting with blocks of wood and hand finished and treated with Tung oil. The rug posted is one a customer sent of what she made with her needle and instructions (Thanks Jody)
