Brown and Black Honeycomb, 1) fat quarter yard hand dyed wool fabric for rug hooking & applique, W501

Shipping to United States: $4.50
Sorry, this item has sold.

This listing is for 1) Fat Quarter of 100% wool fabric that I have hand dyed and prepared for use in rug hooking, applique, sewing and craft projects. The approximate measurement is 16" x 27".

I have overdyed a natural and black honeycomb texture with an "old brown" recipe. This wool is a medium weight and can be used for cuts #8 and wider.
There are areas of mottling where the dye soaks in at varying degrees to create lighter brown and darker brown areas. Each time I over dye this wonderful wool the brown can vary slightly, so if you have ordered this listing from me before, it may not be an exact match to earlier batches.

This primitive brown...old brown...has been a popular choice for outlining motifs and borders in rug hooking designs.
It adds a fun texture and look to any design.
Hook horses and dogs, backgrounds, ground, pastures, fields, mountains, shadows, roofs.

Also use in sewing projects such as pincushions, make-dos, needle cases, purses, bags, quilts, mats, table runners.

    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.

    This fabric is gorgeous! I’m using it as the center of fabric sunflowers. It’s perfect! The fabric has beautiful texture and color. I know that I will use the extra for something else, maybe a purse. It’s that beautiful. It came quickly and was packaged nicely.
