One of the essential materials for punch needle projects is a high quality yarn. If you want to make long-lasting decor items that will stand the test of time (such as rugs), then you need a yarn that is going to last.
This yarn is a chunky, bulky weight yarn which is perfect for punching. With it's coarse, unrefined texture, this 100% New Zealand wool, rug yarn is super durable for your punch needle rug hooking projects.
Wool has many advantageous properties over a synthetic fibre. It is a natural insulator, breathable, biodegradable, resilient and renewable. We are yet to manufacture another fibre to match it's unique properties.
The yarn comes in 100g balls, wound by hand, great for those larger projects or if you want to use a simple palette of two to three colours.
Weight: chunky / bulky / thick / 4 ply
Needles / hook: 8mm - 10mm
Length: 25 metres approx
Ball weight: 100g approx
Works perfectly with the Oxford regular needles and the adjustable punch needle. Starting with a chunky yarn when you are learning how to punch needle is great as it punches up quickly. A little easier to handle when you're a beginner and is fun to frog (frogging: pulling out your work and starting again!) as it is durable and hard-wearing.
Punch needle rug yarn is available in modern muted tones: light ice blue, frosty white, cream, speckled pebble grey, burnt orange, speckled biscuit, champagne beige, peachy coral, muted dusky pink, speckled dark blue, charcoal blue grey, dark peacock green, mid denim blue.
Please note that I have tried to represent the colours of the yarn as accurately as possible, however differences in colour may occur due to monitor displays or computer settings.
