It's all about the wool at WOOLEN FOLK ART. We provide rug patterns, rug making kits, supplies and of course wool. Whether you like rug hooking - punch needle - embroidery - appliqué - sewing or dyeing wool, we've got the woolens for you! The finest there is and milled in the USA.
Wool is at the heart of what my creations are all about. Wool fabric direct from the mill is beautiful no doubt, but when placed into a dye bath in my studio the end results are even more beautiful. The results are organic, subtle nuances, a human touch, unlike fabric dyed in the factory. My dying process is shared in my book: Beginners Guide to Dyeing Wool Available with color samples and TOD dye spoon.
All rugs begin with some sort of foundation cloth onto which a design is drawn to create the pattern. Then wool fabric strips or yarn colors are selected to fill in the pattern shapes. Think of it as coloring with beautiful wool.
