After a recent share of my hooked poppy rug on Facebook, I heard a unanimous voice of "Don't even think of letting anyone put their paws on your new rug!"

So although these kinds of wool hooked rugs last a very long time when used as rugs, I will listen to the masses and hang it somewhere in my home.  I do love all the bright colored poppies and will be able to admire it more frequently than if I relegate it to a guest bedroom.
 
You can still find antique hooked rugs in shops, but I do have to agree they are often pretty worn and stained.  I'm sure many of these hookers of yore were much quicker at the hooking and did their own dying of used woolens so the expense wasn't a top factor.  They needed some warm floor covering, too, to stop the cold draft coming up through the floorboards.
