Established in August 2008, Camp Wool is a retail wool store with a mission to find you the best quality wool, patterns and products to meet your rug hooking, pennyrug, cross stitch, needle punch and braiding needs! We offer a huge selection of hand-dyed and bolt wool with an emphasis on textured wool for primitive designs. We carry a large selection of hand dyed floss and pearl cotton and hundreds of patterns for penny rugs and punchneedle and general needlework projects.
If you are interested in learning to hook or any of the other crafts we support, we offer classes all year round with a variety of teachers for all skill levels. With so much to see here at the store and in our beautiful surroundings here in the Kennebunks, you just might want to spend the day. We would love to see you!
A Note from LeAnn
I discovered my love for wool and rug hooking about 25 years ago. It started innocently enough. I was going to take a quilt class but while waiting at the store to sign up I spotted a small cupboard full of wool, some patterns and a few hooked samples. A sign indicated that they were going to have a class on “rug hooking”. I had no clue what “rug hooking” was all about as being from the Midwest all I had ever seen was wool blankets, not rugs! Well, I signed up and after the first 10 minutes I was truly “hooked”. I bought my next pattern that night and finished it the next day and I was off!
With the support of my wonderful husband Mark and very dear friends I have realized a dream to pursue my love for wool! I know there are many of you out there also “hooked” or would love to learn. We hope you can stop by and share in our mutual passions to create with wool! If you do, please consider bringing your work … we would love to see it!
