The Tux hoop was designed to give more grip, than the wooden hoops, which helps to keep the backing taut. Both the inner and outer bands have a textured surface, so you don't have to constantly tug on the backinng to keep a firm work surface.
This small hoop is 12 inches, which is good for those very small projects where you don't want to have to add extenders. It is also good for applique and needle work projects. A great hoop for travelling.
The medium hoop is 13.5 inches and is the perfect all round hoop, good for large and small projects.
The large hoop is 15 inches and is great for those large projects where you want to see more of the pattern you are working on.
This hoop still travels well and fits in a hooking bag nicely.
The new plastic hoops have been designed specifically for rug hooking by Willow Creek Rug Hooking.The inner texture provides great grip for the backing keeping it snug for easier hooking. The hoops come in two sizes Large 15 inches-$60, Medium 13.5 inches $58. They open wide enough to accomadate even the widest cut.
