7 yards wholesale rug hooking wool hand dyed
Hand Dyed 100% wool for Rug Hooking, Penny Rugs, Quilting, Applique, SCA, diaper cover woollies, and many other types of fiber arts. Wholesale prices.
Your choice of 28 colors in 1/4 yard pieces. These are hand dyed in the colors you want when you order so it could take up to a week for us to dye and ship this wool out to you. If you need a time estimate, let us know. We often have lots of colors in stock but sometimes have to dye your colors to order.
28 quarter yards equals 7 yards of wool. We dye our wool in 1/4 yard pieces to get the best color mottling and color texture and saturation in our wools. We use a natural unbleached white and natural tweeds to overdye for this collection. You can specify if you want a solid overdyed white or a tweed for your color choice. The wool we use is a woven 100% wool fabric in 12 to 14 ounce weights per yard. This is not a craft felt wool. It is woven 100% wool fabric from American mills. We lanolin soak our wool after dyeing in the final rinse so you receive a soft and finished fabric ready to use the moment you receive it. We use Kookaburra all natural wool wash with pharmaceutical grade lanolin and tea tree as our final rinse.
color choices are:
Olde Ivory, Dirty Snow, Straw, Buttercream, Sour Apple, Sunny Yellow, Golden Pear, Mustard, Toffee, Olde Gold, Canary Yellow, Apricot, Spiced Pumpkin, Bright Pumpkin, Peach Blossom, Terra Cotta, Brick, Cape Cod Cranberry, Rooster Red, Rust, Dusty Rose, Deep Pink, Prim Rose, Poppy Red, Barn Red, Rose Red, Watermelon, Colonial Blue, Sky Blue, Sunny Sky Spot Dye, Periwinkle, Royal Blue, Turquoise, Bright Blue, Teal, French Vanilla, Toast, Chestnut, Dusty Trail, Mouse Grey, Avocado, Juniper, Moss, Spearmint, Key Lime, Forest Green, Leaf Green, Evergreen, Dark Meadow, Mulberry, Boysenberry, Regal Purple, Iris, Violet, Plum, Lilac
Average size of each quarter yard after dyeing is 16x26 give or take a little due to different shrinkage of wool.
Your order could be a mix of natural over-dyed tweeds and over dyed unbleached natural white. You may choose if you want over dyed white or over dyed tweeds for each of your color choices. Otherwise, we choose a mix of dyed tweeds and dyed natural solid wool in the colors you specify based on what wools we have in stock at the time of your order.

Hand Dyed Wool

Then it might be a day or two longer, but I will always let you know if there is a delay. The large wholesale orders of wool are hand dyed to order and can take up to a week before I can ship it out. You can contact me for turn around time on the hand dyed wholesale wool if you need a delivery time estimate. We have an always rotating supply of wool in stock at all times.
WHY USE LANOLIN and WHAT IS LANOLIN WOOL?
All wool has been soaked in pure hospital grade lanolin as the final soak. This makes the wool soft and conditions the wool to make it hook better and feel better in your hands.
We use a lanolin wool wash called Kookaburra. It re-infuses the wool with all its wonderful goodness. Kookaburra is also offered in our store so you can treat all your wool and make it even more wonderful!
When you dye wool, the lanolin is melted out of it. After we dye our wool, we soak it in the Kookaburra, which puts the lanolin back in the wool.
Wool with lanolin, resists dirt, debris, stains, dust and water. By soaking our wool, it makes for a much better final product for you.
Once you use our wool, we are sure you will feel, smell and see the difference. Wool is marvelous and wonderful and a lot of its greatness is for its lanolin properties.
WILL YOU CUT THE WOOL FOR ME FOR RUG HOOKING?
Wholesale orders of wool would have additional charges for cutting wool. Any wool listed that is less one yard, I will cut in the size you request with no additional charges or fees, as long as you are willing to wait for a day or two for shipping after your payment and checkout.
If you dont have a cutter for rug hooking, let us cut the wool for you. We use a Rigby and a Fraser to cut our wool.
We have blade sizes #3 through #10. Blade numbers and widths are as follows:
# 3 = 3/32" wide
# 4 = 1/8" wide
# 5 = 5/32" wide
# 6 = 6/32" wide
# 7 = 7/32" wide
# 8 = ¼" wide
# 8.5 = 5/16" wide
# 9 = 3/8" wide
#10 = ½" wide
#3-#4 are considered as fine or traditional rug hooking size - you get very fine detailing with these size cuts.
#5-#7 are midway sizes and allow some detailing
#8-#8.5 are considered traditional primitive hooking widths
#9-#10 are considered wide hooking
Each cut has its own nuances and pros and cons - it is perfectly acceptable to use all sizes of cuts in one rug or art piece. We will be happy to cut bundles in one size or a variety of sizes for each bundle for you with no additional fees. Just let us know in checkout messages or email what sizes you want your wool.
WHAT KIND OF WOOL IS USED?
Unless otherwise stated in individual listing, these are brand new off the bolt textures, plaids, tweeds and solids hand overdyed with our stock dye colors. These ARE ALL NEW 100% WOOL OFF THE BOLT - HAND DYED, AND SOAKED IN OUR LANOLIN WOOL WASH, unless otherwise stated in the ad that we used recycled woolens.
These wools are all the perfect weight for rug hooking and penny rugs. A nice medium weight with great hand and feel to each wool. These wools are 12 to 14 ounce per yard. Perfect for rug hooking, penny rugs, appliqué, quilting, sewing and more. These wools are all what I use in my own rug hooking and wool crafts, and I know first hand how each and every wool reacts and responds when being used for rug hooking and crafts. This is marvelous quality wool.
All our wool is already washed, hand dyed and lanolin soaked - ready to use.
We steam press all our wool before we photograph it, list it and store it for shipping. These wools are dyed, in stock and ready to ship as soon as payment is made. We only have the quantity listed, but can always dye more, or dye another color on your request.
