Item details

Buying a subtle blend of many warm oranges, pinks, and reds increases your creative flexibility without adding to your stash. How about using this bundle of at least 8 different wools to add variation and depth to a floral motif?

This bundle contains 45 strips of wool rescued from discarded garments. These are all primitive or #8 cut, or about 1/4" wide. Length averages 20". All fabrics are at least 80% wool. All fabric has been washed, dried, and stored according to the recommendations of rug hookers.

Some of the most impressive artistry comes from finding uses out of discarded items. Purchasing reused wool that is ready to hook eliminates much of the labor yet benefits your art and minimizes damage to your environment. In addition to keeping damaged or worn items out of landfill, it limits pollutants. I try to make all my rugs with wool clothes I find at thrift and charity stores. I enjoy the thrill of the hunt and the juxtapositions of texture and colour reclaimed wool brings.

Please be aware that working with reclaimed or repurposed wool can be challenging. Thickness and weight vary considerably from fabric to fabric. Correspondingly, you may need to experiment with space you leave between loops in your rug. Additionally, some wools tend to lose threads (just snip them off) and some are more likely to fold. Having said that, I find that used wool is much more pliant (and easier on the hands) than new!
