Rug Wool Yarns

Rug Wool yarns are a coarser yarn which hold in the foundation cloth like Primary Rug Backing or Monks Cloth.

Silky smooth yarns are great for knitting but tend to slip and slide out of place when punching. This can make for uneven loops heights and a very messy punching project.

Rug wools are the perfect fit for your next rug or pillow project. We carry a wide and always growing selection of yarns here at Mini Masterpieces. Check back for new colors!

Shown at the left is an example of a 3ply Worsted Aran weight and a Bulky 4 ply.

The far left 3 ply weight rug wool is great for the adjustable SKC needles, Oxford Regular needles, and a few other punch needles on the market.

The extra Bulky 4ply rug wool on the right is best for the Oxford Regular needles. This Bulky yarn is a bit too thick for other needles.

Both yarn weights are suitable for rug hooks.


Put your adjustable needle at a longer loop height with thicker yarns to allow more yarn length to grab into the cloth. This is great if you're having issues with the loops being extremely small or not staying in place. You can get some bulky yarns to work in an Adjustable needle this way. Use loop height setting "A"
