Welcome to Judith Hotchkiss Designs and Dyeworks

Here you will find wonderful yarns and wool fabric hand-dyed in luscious colors for rug hooking, punching and applique. My primary focus is dyeing two weights of wool yarn, 3-ply bulky rug weight and 2-ply worsted weight, in multiple values for fine shading with the Oxford punch. Value swatches of wool fabric as well as spot-dyed wool yardage and yarns are also favorites. Color is my passion and I love creating raw materials that inspire others.

Note: It is difficult to capture on the computer screen the subtle nuances that make these wool yarns and fabrics so wonderful to hook and punch. Our Swatch Cards allow you to see and feel the colors before ordering. Remember, these yarns are all hand dyed in small batches and colors will vary somewhat from skein to skein and dye lot to dye lot. If you know you will need a larger quantity for a project, it is a good idea to order enough at one time.
