Buttercream, a mill dyed wool fabric for Rug Hooking and Applique Wool, W573, Creamy country white


Shipping to United States: $4.40

Buttercream is a soft warm light wool that makes me think of butter cream frosting, sunlit clouds, primitive snowmen. It has a windowpane weave with shades of natural and threads of soft apricot.
Fat quarters measure approx 16" x 28", fat eighths approx 14" x 16".

It is a medium weight wool, suitable for rug hooking cuts #6 and wider. I have gently washed it, making it ready for rug hooking, applique, sewing projects and quilting.

Add it to your stash to mix with other lights. It's so nice for over dyeing. This wool would be perfect for flowers, houses, clouds, snow, snowmen, animals, and more.

These photos were taken in bright studio lighting. Light colors are hard to capture the true color. They change in different lighting. Please refer to description above.

    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.
