About this product:
The clue is somewhat in the name, but our Ragged Life locker hook is used for the locker hooking technique of rag rug making, which you can read a bit more about here or learn how to do by reading "Rag Rug Techniques for Beginners".
What is locker hooking?
Locker hooking is a form of rug making done using yarn or fabric strips. It looks similar to the loopy technique of traditional British rag rugging, but the loops are secured in position with a "locking medium" (generally t-shirt yarn, wool or thin fabric strips), which is pulled through all the loops to support them so that they cannot be pulled out. Amazing right!
You can use your locker hook to create rugs, cushions, wall hangings, bags and other decorative items.
About our Ragged Life Locker Hook:
Our stainless steel locker hook has been carefully chosen to work with a 3.3 HPI (holes per inch) rug canvas and fabrics of all different weights. It features a deep hook at one end for hooking loops up through the rug canvas and a large eye at the other end to thread up with the "locking medium" (generally t-shirt yarn, wool or thin fabric strips).
This is the very same locker hook that we do all our locked hooked projects with!
Please note, this listing does not come with the locking medium or canvas, just the tool itself.
To start your locker hooking journey, you'll also need rug canvas. Keep an eye out for our listing for 3.3 HPI Zweigart rug canvas sold by the metre coming soon.
