Dying Supplies

Wouldn't you love to be able to dye all the wonderful colors you ever needed for your projects? Don't let this scare you or intimidate you, its easy! At Searsport Rug Hooking we only use Jacquard dyes. I prefer them for many reasons, the main one is that they come in a small jar so they are very easy to use.  We offer the full line of Jacquard Acid dyes. All of the dyed wool in our studio are dyed using these dyes. They work just like Cushing and Pro-Chem dyes. I like that they come in a half once jar, it makes it much easier to work with. We also use many wonderful textures from other suppliers. We do very little solids because we love the textured look. Any questions on dying just yell, Julie is happy to help you.

Linen

Linen.... I will only say that there is a reason that we only put our patterns on one backing. We love it plain and simple. Its strong, long lasting, doesn't stretch out of shape from packing and if you like to do big rugs you can do room sized rugs, with no over lap seam using our 102in wide linen! We are happy to send a sample if you would like to touchy feely it ;) If you have ever hooked one of our patterns then you have used our linen, we have imported this for years! The EPI (ends per inch) is 13. "We have bulk pricing on all our linen. The more you buy, the more you save! Each listing is for certain yardages price break. You just put in how many yards you want at that price, it must be in the yardage for that discount. For instance you can not order one yard at the 50 yard price ;)  If you order less then the bulk pricing for that listing we will refund your order.” We are very excited to offer two new linens! One is for fine cut work, suitable for 2-5 cut. It is an even weave just like our wide cut linen, but it is only 57 inches wide. This is also PERFECT for the Oxford punch needle using yarn! We will have bulk pricing on this also. Our second linen is a fine weave for stitching and miniature punching and appliqué!   

Linen blanks

Over Dyed Wool

 This page is still evolving.... Please hang in there with us. I'm trying to find a format that works for us with over dyed wool.  Because every piece is unique and different I want you to see the piece you are ordering. But because we sell so much in the Studio it's a daily job keeping this page updated. If your looking for a certain color feel free to email us and I will take pictures of the current wool and email them to you. Meanwhile this page will look a bit wonky till I figure it out lol  Our over dyed wool is all ready for you to work with. Please remember to order more then you need to sure you have enough and Please remember that all monitors show color very differently. When I load a picture and I list it here, it is a very close match. We have no control over how your monitor is set or shows color. We always welcome you sending a small sample of what you are looking for and we will do our very best to match it as closely as we can. If it would not work for us we would not send it to you either :) We use a mixture of Heavens to Betsy wool's, The Wool Studios Wool's and Dorr Wool's for our base dying fabrics. We use our own formulas and only Jaquard Dyes as our dyes.
