We are now receiving limited stock of some colours of the Romney rug wool and we will be putting them back on the website over the next few days once we have checked the stock. We are aiming to despatch orders within 7 working days.

We are continuing as normal with online and telephone orders although it will take longer for us to dispatch your parcels as there is only one person assembling and packing instead of four.

You may have been redirected from our other site at rugkits.co.uk. This is a temporary measure while our staff are on furlough, you can set up a new account or checkout as a guest, your previous account will not work on this site.

We have taken the decision to close our shop in Queen Street until further notice, please telephone if you need your sewing machine repaired and we will try and make alternative arrangements.


We stock natural pure wool for latch hooking, punch needle, knitting, crocheting and weaving rugs as well as our own unique range of latch hook kits and canvas.

If you would like a custom rug visit Bespoke Rug Patterns where you will find information on a personalised service.

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.
