Hartman Hook, 8mm ERGO Handle, S208, Primitive Rug Hook, Wide Cut Rug Hooking


Shipping to United States: Free

This listing is for an 8mm Hartman ERGO Handle Hook.
The overall length of the hook is about 5-1/4". The hook tips and shaft can vary slightly in size from one another.
The brass shank is about 2-1/2" long and about 1/4" in diameter where it meets the handle.
The handle is yew wood with a very smooth finish. Your hook may not look the same as those in the photos. Each hook is unique and lovely. They all will darken slightly with use.
It has a flat part where your thumb rests.

This hook can fit in your palm or you can hold it like a pencil. The thumb rest helps you know the direction of the hook as you push it through the backing fabric. The 3rd photo shows how it fits in my hand.

A Hartman hook is a great investment for primitive rug hooking. It is so easy to pull your loops through your backing fabric which makes it easier on your wrist. The wide (1/4") metal shank is a great help in making the hole large enough for your 1/4" wide (or wider) strips to slip through like butter :)

    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.
