This listing is for a 9mm Ball Handle Hartman Primitive Rug Hook. It measures about 4-1/2" in length. The brass shank is about 2" long. The ball shaped handle is yew wood with beautiful grain lines and smooth finish. Each hook is unique, some are quite varied with light to dark wood, most are medium brown with beautiful grain lines. They become even more beautiful as you use them :)
A Hartman hook is a great investment for primitive rug hooking.
The 9mm thick brass shank is a great help in making a hole large enough for your 8.5 cuts or wider.
If you work with torn wool strips, the 9mm is a great tool to have.
It is so easy to pull your loops through your backing fabric which makes it easier on your wrist and hand.
This 9mm ball shape fits nicely into the palm of your hand (2nd photo).
The 9mm has a thicker shank and a bit larger hook than the 8mm, but both are great for primitive wide cut hooking.
The size of the handle for both 8mm Ball and 9mm Ball are about the same.

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.
