Handmade kit by Loop by Loop Studios

Description

This listing is for one complete rug hooking kit.


Each kit comes with:
- one hand drawn pattern Monks Cloth (with, at least, a 4 inch border)
- one Moshimer maple hook 
- rug binding
- enough hand dyed wool strips to finish the project. Colors include: teals and blues, burnt orange, whites, and more!
- one color photo, color key, and instructions on how to complete the rug

A rug of this size can be completed using an 8 - 10" non slip embroidery hoop which I sell. Please select the option if you would like to include one in the kit.


About the Foundation Material: Monks Cloth is a cotton based foundation and great for beginners because of it's durability, low cost, and flexibility.

Wool: Please note that many woolen strips are hand dyed and all are hand cut which may cause very slight variations in their shade and thickness. All wools are number 8 size strip unless otherwise noted. All strips are cut but may need to be torn apart to use (Just tear the scored lines quickly to pull apart).
I use a variety of solid and textured wools in my kits and wool mixes. Some shredding of textured wools (ombres, herringbones, plaids) is completely normal, expected, and add visual richness to your rug.

Loop by Loops statement regarding their kits:

Info about our kits:  I always provide enough wool strips to complete every rug, but everyone hooks a little differently. EACH 12-13 INCH LONG STRIP SHOULD COVER ROUGHLY ¼ INCH BY 2.5 OR 3 INCHES (Or take 1.5 to 2 strips per square inch). If not, you are hooking too tight and will run out of wool. 


Please see my videos at loopbyloopstudio.com/instructionsandadvice to see appropriate spacing techniques.
