If you hook rugs, I have a proposition for you.
Once upon a time, I made braided rugs using wool strips evenly & precisely cut somewhere between 2-2.5" wide (I'd have to go measure & to do so now would wake DH) across the width of the fabric. I am sure that I will never again make braided rugs, so what to do with the strips? I am guessing that a hooker can run them through a strip cutter ...
... in order to cut them down to hooking size. The strips are clean & free of any odors (DH & I are not smokers). They have also never come in contact with Sophie ...
... so you needn't worry about cat hair : )
I have 4 humongous Rubbermaid containers filled with these wool strips in a large variety of colors. The exact number of strips is unknown to me, but as you can see, there are a lot. I apologize for the less than enticing photo. It was taken last week when I decided to de-clutter the guest room & wanted some "before" photos.
My proposition is this: if you are a hooker & would like to have these strips, I will gladly send them to you in exchange for (A) dollars (make me an offer), or (B) handmade items crafted by your own talented hands. This offer is only open to folks living in the continental US due to the cost of shipping which I know will be quite horrific. I have considered putting them in groups to sell on eBay or in my Etsy shop, but I just don't want the hassle of doing that.
If you are interested in the strips, please contact me via email. Needless to say, the Rubbermaid containers are not part of the deal : )
