Plain Black Wool Fabric, for Rug Hooking and Applique, W315, Solid Black Wool Fabric


Shipping to United States: $4.50

Plain black is 100% mill dyed wool. It is a plain black flannel weave wool. It weighs approximately 15 oz/yard

This wool has been gently washed making it ready to use in your next project. The wool shrinks from 10% to 15% during the washing process. This tightens the weave to make it ready to cut into strips for rug hooking or cut and stitch for applique with minimal fraying.

Select size in the options box. Approximate measurements:
One Yard - 32" x 56"
Half Yard - 16" x 56"
Fat quarters - 16" x 28"
Fat eighths - 14" x 16"

Use it for backgrounds for applique and rug hooking. It will mix beautifully with other dark textures and plaids. Add black to any and all projects to create a great graphic effect.

The other wool selections in the photos are props to help you see the color more easily.

If you have ordered plain black from me before, this may be from a different manufacturer than earlier plain black wool listings.

    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.

    Just what I needed. Thank you

    Nice wool felt but not as soft as the other fabrics. Fine for the background of my appliqué piece.

    Shipped out on time - exactly as described - EXCELLENT Communication! Thank you so much for another wonderful shopping experience!

    Many thanks for a wonderful offering! I can't find wool in fabric shops anymore-only the poly rayon wool which I do not particularly like. You saved the day! Smooth transaction and quick shipping!

    Excellent wool, beautiful color, excellent price, excellent quality and fast shipping.
