Star Barn, a mill dyed wool fabric for Rug Hooking and Appliqué, W542, dark red plaid, cranberry red wool


Shipping to United States: $4.50

Star Barn is a deep red plaid made up of wine red, navy blue with hints of chocolate. Think of cabernet, merlot, cranberries... It is a rich dark vibrant red which is bright cranberry next to a sunny window and deep mysterious red away from direct light. The plaid is small, about one inch square.
It is 100% mill dyed wool fabric which I have gently washed to make it ready for rug hooking, applique, quilting and many other wool stitchery projects.
Fat quarters measure approx 16" x 28", fat eighths approx 14" x 16".

It is a medium weight, suitable in rug hooking for all primitive cuts #7 through wide cuts.
Add this lovely red to your stash to have it ready for your next project. Fabulous for backgrounds, borders, flowers, berries and more.
A great red for your patriotic projects and fall leaves. Use for barns, houses, Santa's coat or snowman mittens. If you are making wool quilts, this is a red you would want to include. Pincushions, pin keeps, scissor bags, doll clothes, table many ideas.

    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.
    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.
