Desert Rose, one fat quarter, hand dyed wool fabric for Rug Hooking and Applique, W526, warm red stripe wool, warm rose red


Shipping to United States: $4.50

Desert Rose, 1) fat quarter yard of hand dyed 100% wool fabric. It measures about 16" x 28".
I have over dyed a tan striped wool with a soft red recipe I call Desert Rose. It is a warm red, great for flowers, houses, old barns, fruit, leaves, berries, sunset, rocks, borders, beauty lines, outlining.

This wool fabric is medium weight, most suitable for wide cut hooking #6 and wider. It has been hand dyed by me, prepared and ready to go for your next project. Besides rug hooking and applique, it will work great for wool quilts, table runners, pincushions, make-dos, pin keeps, purses, pouches, anywhere you can use hand dyed wool fabric.

Keep in mind that your screen or monitor may display colors differently. Reds are really hard to photograph.
In my house, by the window it is a soft muted warm red.

These photos were taken under bright studio lighting, so the wool may be a bit brighter than in person. It's a wonderful color! The basket of paisley and the books in the background help the camera more accurately read the colors.

Thank you for visiting and feel free to contact me if you have questions.

    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.
