Hand-hooked Wool Rug


Rubye Burton, who lived on Circle Drive in DeFuniak Springs, hand hooked this rug in the early 1960s, using the wooden floor stand pictured below to hold the rug frame as she worked. She cut beige wool into strips and hand-dyed them, thereby creating a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. At the time of its completion, it was the largest known hand-hooked rug in the country, measuring 12 by 17 feet.
