This listing is for the KIT to hook my design "American Robin 10" x 12". It includes a wool pack and a hand drawn pattern.
Each kit includes:
1. The pattern on cotton monks cloth or primitive linen, select your choice. The foundation fabric is about 20" x 19" making it fit in most lap frames and 14" hoops. The edges are serged to protect while hooking.
2. 100% wool fabrics that I have hand dyed and/or mill dyed wool fabrics. Choose to have your wool sent to you uncut or cut in #8 (1/4" wide) strips (see photos)
3. Instructions of where to use the colors in the wool pack and a color photo. It does NOT include instructions on how to hook.
To hook this mat, you will need a primitive rug hook, a rug hooking frame or hoop and edging to finish the edges of the design.
The robin is hooked with black, gray and rust. I used greens and rust for the leaves, a light brown plaid for the branches and medium neutral textures for the background. For the border I hooked a "hit and miss" border, using all the leftovers from the project.
I finished my mat as a pillow with a prodded edge. Wool for this is not included in the kit.

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.
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.
Beginners 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, but usually choose linen for larger projects.
Yes, if the difference is $3.00 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.

Good quality item. Just as described.

The kit is beautiful and easy to hook - this is my first project on my own! I am using a 14" no-slip hoop as recommended and all I have left is the border. However, 14" is too small for this pattern which includes the border. I have to purchase a 17" hoop in order to finish the border, since the diagonal measure is actually about 16".
