Binding a Hooked Rug with Wool Strips

I love rug hooking and the technique to hook a rug is really quite simple. You just pull loops up through a backing fabric. But when it comes to finishing the rug, I’ve been quite baffled. There are many different methods of binding a handmade rug. The one that appealed most to me was whipping the edges with wool yarn. I found it challenging, however, to find yarn that was good enough quality and a color that I would like to use. A yarn store about an hour away from me had a great selection and I thought I had a solution, but then they closed down. I decided that I would give binding with wool fabric a try and I love it!
