This listing is for the KIT to hook my design "Bluebird 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.
2. 100% wool fabrics, 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 2nd photo)
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 yarn or fabric to finish the edges of the design.
The raw edges of the foundation fabric have been serged and it measures about 20" x 20" to fit on most lap frames.
The bluebird is hooked with blues, rust and white. A green stripe for the leaves, an orange plaid for the berries and a dusty brown for the branches. The background was hooked with various neutral lights. The border is hooked with all the leftovers plus a bit of deep blue.
If you need a hook, see the ones I offer in the Hooking Supplies section: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DesignsInWool?ref=listing-shop2-all-items-count§ion_id=7706447

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.
