Pat Donoho's Profile
I have been an avid rug hooker since 2001 and started dying my own wool almost immediately, using mainly recycled wool.
I now love to dye primarily primitive colors using all types of newly-milled textured wools. In my hooked rugs and penny rugs I use a combination of "as-is" and over-dyed wools, since I love the depth and richness of color that dying brings to the wools.
My inspirations come from the colors of nature surrounding me on our 50-acre farm with the gardens, trees, fields and ponds. Folk art, antiques and old primitive rugs also delight and inspire.
I love everything about wool: the diversity of textures, its softness and durability and the flexibility of the art it can create. It is timeless.
Because I love color...
