“When I punched my rug, I couldn’t find the right background color to go with the center. Heidi at Palm Cay Rug Yarn helped me figure out which color went best by asking me which room my rug was going into. It all made sense when it was explained that way.”

R. Merry

“To be honest I was afraid that I would pick colors that didn’t go. I am always picking blues and getting the same thing over and over. I wanted a change and actually bought a blue hand dyed from Palm Cay that had all kinds of colors mixed in it so I could add different colors and not get the same blue rug.”

Alyssa C.

“I asked the team at Palm Cay if they could help me find a color that I had already used but I didn’t have enough. They dyed a skein that matched good enough to finish my border.”

S.P. from Florida


Palm Cay wants to make this journey an easy and affordable one so that punching or hooking ignites an artistic passion that will last for years to come. Growing in this art form leads to personal confidence with a sense of accomplishment. With our specialty palette and matching coordinates, we want the artist to feel the texture that is created from our hand dyeds by experiencing color use in a new way. Heidi uses her extensive color training to teach others how to best develop their designs.

Yarn Calculator

A) 1 square foot = 12 inches by 12 inches requires roughly 2/3 of a pound or 10 ounces of wool.

  • An example of a rug 2 feet by 3 feet or (2’x3’) is 6 square feet. 6 multiplied by 2/3 or (0.66) = 3.96 or round up to 4 pounds of wool.
  • One pound of wool is 4 (4-ounce skeins) or 16 ounces.

B) 10 ounces of wool per foot multiplied by 6 square feet = 10 x 6= 60 ounces or approximately 15 (4 ounce) skeins.

  • Another method that is helpful is to measure area with your hand. A human hand averages 9” across with fingers comfortably spread out. When your hand is placed on the rug the area it covers is roughly 4 ounces of wool.

Yarn Weight Gauge

How to determine which needle to use with which yarn.

  • Bulky 4- ply yarn: Use Regular Barrel punch needle
  • Classic 3-ply worsted yarn: Use either Regular or Fine Barrel punch needle
  • Lite- 2-ply sport yarn: Use Fine Barrel punch needle

A Word About Safety

Punch needles are sharp and the tools that are used in rug hooking and punching need to be cared for by an adult and/or used under adult supervision. Yarn can be a choking hazard so please keep out of reach of children.
