Description:  Needlepoint and hooked wool techniques are combined to create a unique art piece.  The needlepoint provides the detail to this colorful Iris and the hooked wool provides the background to create a wall accessory that could complement a larger art feature or stand alone on a smaller, corner wall.

Designer: Needlepoint design by Paula Vaughan; background by Nancy Pierce at Artisans on the cul-de-sac.

Technique:  Counted cross-stich is used for the Iris design.  Hand-dyed, wool strips are hooked by hand to create a rich, soft wool background texture.  The edges are finished with tape and whipped stitching using wool yarn.  A metal frame has been inserted into the back within the tape and is ready for hanging.

Fabrics: 100% wool, hand-dyed and hooked on cotton monks cloth for the background; cotton thread for the needlepoint.

Care: Spot clean using gentle cleaners suitable for woolen fabrics.

Size: 12 X 14 inches, finished size
