We stock natural pure wool for latch hooking, punch needle, rug tufting, knitting, crocheting and weaving rugs as well as our own unique range of latch hook kits and canvas.
The advantages of this sustainable fibre compared to synthetic man-made yarns are:-
It is easily maintained, resists soiling, repels surface spills and responds well to cleaning.
Non allergenic, wool is not known to cause allergy and does not promote the growth of bacteria. With microscopic scales, wool fibres can trap dust in the top layers until vacuumed away.
It promotes comfort and well being, with insulation properties which reduce noise, heat loss, condensation and improves indoor air quality.
It is safe, non slip and naturally fire resistant.
It is ecologically advantageous, grown naturally from a renewable source and is completely recyclable and biodegradable.
Durable and elastic, wool fibre can be bent 20,000 times without breaking and still have the power to recover and return to its natural shape. Quality wool rugs look good for longer.
