Fine Woolens and Rug Hooking Equipment from The Merry Hooker Woolens



~~~ New Wool Appliqué Page Coming Soon! ~~~

We are busily working on expanding our offerings to our wool appliqué customers. Look for new patterns, books and bundles of wool especially with the quilter and appliqué artist in mind. We've had many requests for bundles of wool in smaller sizes geared to quilting and applique projects so we're busy in the dye pots coming up with several collections we think you're going to love!
In the meantime, we have a few new patterns for you from Maggie Bonanomi, Woolylady, Ginger Sanchez & some sweet holiday designs from Nutmeg Hare. We also have a new shipment of our great basic black wool especially for applique.

See our new offerings on the Wool Appliqué page.

Here at The Merry Hooker Woolens we are well-known for our extensive collection of hand dyed primitive and muted colors of rug hooking wool. But it's time to expand our horizions and welcome brighter colors into the fold.  I've been working on a more vivid palette for some time now & will be adding more wonderful and brilliant colors as I get them photographed. Think sun-drenched tropical flora, cool jungles, exotic fauna and vast expanses of fresh open waters. You're going to love these!

~~~ Rug Hooking Patterns ~~~

Be sure to take a look at our delightful line of patterns from Martina Lesar Designs, Karla Gerard, Primitive Spirit by Karen Kahle and Sharon Smith of Off the Hook Rugs. Many are available as kits with our fabulous hand dyed wools. Check out the Patterns may just find a great new hooking project.

 Notable product additions.... a category in the Hand Dyed Woolens section for spot dyes, heavily mottled pieces and marbleized wools, delightful new rug hooking patterns from Annetiques, Hartman Hooks, Cushing's Dyes, color planning tools and a great basic collapsible rug hooking frame.

Is there something you'd like me to offer on the website? I welcome suggestions for quality rug hooking supplies.
