Raisins and Plums includes four 100% mill dyed wool fabrics that I have washed and dried (fulled), making them perfectly ready for use in rug hooking, applique, sewing and crafting. They are all medium weight. Three are more tightly woven and one is more loosely woven. That texture is reversible. These are good for primitive cuts, #8 and wider.
You can choose the size you prefer to work with in the drop down box when ordering. The photos show the largest size, the Fat Quarters.
The sizes are approximate, depending on shrinkage during the felting process. Each piece shrinks differently so the four pieces will not all measure the same.
Fat Quarters, show in the photo are approximately 15" x 27" to 16" x 28"
Fat Eighths - approximately 13" x 15" to 14" x 16"
Fat Sixteenths - approx. 6.5" x 15" to 7" x 16"
This collection would be great for backgrounds (I used it in my Spiral Chickens Revised (listing P101), see 4th photo); Also use for hooking or appliqueing animals, borders, hills, mountains, vegetables, fruits, and more.
Add these values to any black wools you might have in your stash to liven up a background, border or motif.
An eclectic mix of colors and textures, they are ready for use in rug hooking, appliqué, and many sewing projects such as quilting, clothing, handbags, pillows, sachets, hats, scarves, mittens, stuffed animals, pincushions...so many ideas :)
Included (order as in first photo, top to bottom):
Eggplant plaid woven with threads of gray and khaki with soft hints of rust
Dusty Violet Check with darker grape and merlot and hints of olive
Russet Red Stripe, shades of rich brown reds with charcoal and light brown lines.
Reversible rich brown/rust brown (this is the more loosely woven one, see photo two to see both sides, it's on the top)
Shipping is based on the price for shipping 4) Fat Quarters. If you order the smaller bundle size, I will refund the difference in the actual shipping and handling cost, if any.
See listing P101, Revised Spiral Chicken Pattern to see how these look in the background.

Cotton Monks Cloth is 100% cotton woven with two warp threads and two weft threads. 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 makes it great for all primitive cuts, #7 and wider.
Beginnners 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 and enjoy working with both.
