Halcyon Yarn Rug Wool description:
Our rug yarn stands the test of time: Halcyon Yarn Signature Classic Rug Wool is a sturdy, beautiful and versatile wool rug yarn. Made from 100% certified New Zealand wool, with a firm, even twist, Halcyon Yarn's exclusive 3-ply wool rug yarn is custom spun and dyed in the finest family-run spinning mills and dye houses. The durable wool fiber is perfect for creating beautiful and stylish wool rugs and tapestries. Our Classic Rug Wool yarn is available in nearly 100 colors, the broad color palette offers both solid colors and heathered colors and is an enduring favorite among rug weavers. A great yarn for rugs, tapestries, hooked, knitted or crocheted projects. Halcyon Yarn Rug Wool is easy to hand-dye with Earthues Natural, Wash Fast Acid or Country Classic dyes for more subtle coloration. Since our rug wool is 100% wool it will felt so it's great for knitted or crocheted rugs made loosely and then felted for an extra sturdy finish. Our Classic Rug Wool comes in hefty 100 gram hanks or in 55" strands perfect for accents. Rug Wool is mothproofed for longevity.
