Emma, a mill dyed wool fabric for Rug Hooking and Appliqué, W496, primitive purple, rosey purple plaid

Shipping to United States: $4.40

Sorry, this item has sold.

Emma is lovely small plaid woven with purples, rose and a soft muted teal. It is almost magical how it can look both rose and purple by turning it this way and that. A great wool to help you achieve an old, primitive, vintage, antique look.

This 100% wool fabric is a medium weight and has been gently washed making it ready for primitive rug hooking, applique, sewing and other art projects. Fat quarters measure approx 16" x 26", fat eighths approx 13" x 16".

A great addition to your stash. Great for borders, backgrounds, animals, landscapes and so much more.

The wool shrinks from 10% to 15% during the washing process. This tightens the weave to make it ready to cut into strips for rug hooking or cut and stitch for applique with minimal fraying.

Colors may look different on your monitor. Please refer to the color description above. The photos were taken in bright studio lighting. It may appear less bright in your home setting.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    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.
    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.

    Do you refund shipping overage charges?

    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.
