A Penny Rug in the traditional style of circles within circles. Red hot Americana.
Reuse and Recycle makes our Penny Rug environmentally sound as it is made with leftover bits of wool felt, nothing wasted!
The Adirondack Love Candle Mat is approximately 11 1/2 inches in diameter. The back is a plain complimentary colored wool, stitched with the artisans signature.
Perfect on a nightstand or dining table. Year round, or Holidays only. Place a bowl of fresh apples on top, or a rustic candlestick, and you've got an instant centerpiece for a primitive holiday table. The simple, primitive style of appliqué on our Penny Rugs gives them long-lasting charm.

Made with rich WoolFelt® and remnants of re-purposed felted wool. Each cut, pattern and blanket stitch is done by hand in our modest studio -- nestled in the Champlain Valley -- within the vast landscape that is the Adirondack Park in New York State.
Habitmade Penny Rugs are completely handmade, here in the USA, no two are every entirely identical - although we strive to be consistent. Design colors may vary depending upon the current stash of wool in our basket, but the overall tone and palette will be as pictured.

The Wool Penny Rug is as much a delight to design as to assemble, with the added satisfaction of being able to — at last — use all those luscious bits of leftover wool. Nothing wasted! Much like quilting, penny rug crafting can be a neighborly pursuit, or a lonesome activity on a cold winter night. Either way, the process is the same. Gently felt the wool, carefully cut the ‘penny’ circles and tabs and hearts and flowers, lay the design flat in front of you and begin the blanket stitch. We find it to be entirely meditative.
And at the conclusion – we have a beautiful bit of Americana to share with friends, family, and trusted clients.
