Halcyon Deco Rug Wool Bulky Yarn description:
Deco Rug Wool is a favorite 100% wool rug yarn for rug weavers. Halcyon Yarn's Signature Deco Rug Wool is a sleek and sturdy 3-ply rug wool. Deco is a lighter weight but still rugged version of our 3-ply Classic Rug Wool (item #001). Deco rug yarn is 100% wool dyed on white for crisp, clear color. The classic beauty and durability of Halcyon's Rug Wool in smaller sizes make both Deco and Geo (item #003) rug wools extremely versatile yarns for everything from woven rugs and tapestries to knitted bags, outerwear and punched or hooked pieces. Geo is dyed in the same colors as Deco but on a natural heathered single ply grey for softer, muted colors. The Deco/Geo color range is ideal for mixing and matching, blending and shading. Try double stranding two similar colors to create distinctive tonal effects and custom colors. Deco and Geo are essentially the same size yarn so you can play with both color and surface appearance by using both in the same project.
Deco is a perfect yarn for rug hooking or punching. We recommend two skeins (8 oz) per square foot. Great for woven or knitted outerwear, Deco rug wool softens after washing and is suitable for felting. Deco Rug Wool is mothproofed for longevity.
Recommended sett for balanced weave: Tabby: 6 ends per inch. Twill: 8 ends per inch. Recommended sett for weft faced: Use 4 - 6 epi (single or doubled) in 3 or 4-ply wool or linen warp. Recommended weft allowances for weft faced: Plain weave: 4-6 ounces per square foot. Twill & Boundweave: 5-8 ounces/square foot
Knitters & Crocheters: Deco knits nicely at 3 to 3.5 stitches per inch on a size 10 or 10.5 knitting needle. Crocheters will want to use a size K - M crochet hook.
Rug Hooking & Punching: We recommend approximately 2 skeins (8 oz) per square foot.
For a very durable and attractive whip-stitched biding on the edge of your rug 1 skein of Deco will whip approximately 270 inches.
