This beautifully variegated 100%wool yarn has been hand dyed with the idea of achieving the primitive look of using many different shades of brown in a primitive hooked rug. This listing is for a 4oz. 3 ply skein which is app. 65 yards. This wool is perfect for rug punching using the Oxford #8, #9 and #10 punching tool. Using the Oxford #9 rug punch it takes app 6.5 yards to cover a 3"x3" area. It would be great to also add wool yarn along with your wool strips for a different texture in your hooked rugs!
