Announcement   Time to stock up for the long winter! You will find lovely wool bundles, hand dyed wool, kits and more to give as gifts to your favorite rug hooker, appliquer or wool enthusiast! Be sure to check shipping dates if you plan to give as a Christmas gift. Give yourself a warm cozy Christmas gift to work on in the New Year!

Beautiful wool fabric for rug hooking, applique, quilting, sewing and crafting. Original primitive rug hooking patterns by Mary Johnson. Rug hooking supplies.

All wool fabrics are all 100% wool fabrics from top US distributors. Hand dyed or mill dyed, each piece comes to you washed and dried with care to make if perfectly ready for crafting with wool.

I have been dyeing wool and designing patterns for primitive rug hooking since 1998. My pattern designs are greatly influenced by my love for folk art and simple geometric lines. Many of the designs are inspired by antique rugs and stories of the early days of rug hooking. A bit of whimsy with a lack of perspective fits right in with my fondness for "doodling" which I've been enjoying since I was a young girl.

Dyeing wool is a passion of mine! A perfect day for me starts with mixing up a dye recipe, then watching the wool as it takes up the dye and changes into a new beautiful unique piece. Check back often for hand dyed wool listings as they quickly disappear :)

I'm glad you are here. Peruse the wool fabrics and primitive patterns, many of which are suitable for beginners. If you have never hooked before, I recommend that you sign up for a class or workshop in your area, purchase a book on primitive rug hooking or search for YouTube videos to see how it's done. My kits come with the wool and pattern, but do not include the other items that you will need for rug hooking such as a hook, a frame or hoop and edge finishing yarn or tape.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. I will be happy to help you with special orders.

International customers are welcome to contact me for a shipping quote, click on the "request custom order" on a listing you are interested in, let me know the items and sizes and your country and I will get back to you with a shipping charge quote.

Thank you for visiting Designs In Wool!

About

Primitive Rug Hooking...crafting keepsakes one loop at a time

What I love most about primitive rug hooking is how naive and whimsical it is.
This very old art form evolved out of the utilitarian need to have warm coverings, whether for floor or bed.
The materials were old textiles the maker had on hand. The art work and themes came from their surroundings, drawn as best they could.

My hope is that you will join me in this adventure, to keep the craft of rug hooking alive and well and growing into the next generations.

I'm so glad you have come to visit. I hope I can be of help in providing the supplies and designs you need to start pulling loops :)

A little about me:
At a very young age my mom taught me to sew and Grandma taught me to knit.

From there I pursued so many textile crafts...except rug hooking! But sometimes our lives take serendipitous turns.

In 1998 my sister talked me into trying my hand at rug hooking and I was hooked from the first moment! All my other crafts, quilting, spinning, weaving, sewing have taken a back seat since I started my rug hooking business in 2003. I began by teaching classes and selling hand dyed wool at a quilt shop in Illinois. In 2009 I opened Designs In Wool website and in 2011 opened my Etsy shop.

My husband and I now reside in Prior Lake, Minnesota.
Welcome!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Please feel free to contact me about special orders by clicking on the "request a custom order" button. I have a lot of inventory that is not listed.

If you are looking for a specific color or texture, I will be happy to check my inventory. If you are able to send a photo, that is a great help to me in understanding what you are looking for.

Special Orders are non returnable. Wool Kits and Wool Packs that have been cut in strips for rug hooking are not refundable.

Designs and patterns that have been customized and/or personalized cannot be returned.

Which Backing Fabric should I choose?

Cotton Monks Cloth is 100% cotton woven with two warp threads and two weft threads has 12 x 13 holes per inch. It is great for hooking with all cuts of wool, from fine to primitive cuts. It is less expensive than primitive linen.

Primitive linen is 100% linen, the most durable backing fabric. It is more expensive than other backing fabrics. The evenly spaced weave of 12 x 12 threads per inch makes it great for all primitive cuts, #7 and wider.
Beginnners usually have an easier time hooking with linen.

Both are fine and long lasting choices for the backing to support and make your hooked rug durable.
I use both types and enjoy working with both.

Do you refund shipping overage charges?

Yes, if the difference is $2.00 or more. Etsy calculations, especially on orders with multiple items, can add up to more than the actual shipping. I will let you know when your order is ready to ship if you will be receiving a shipping refund.
