The Rug Wool is a heavyweight 100% wool yarn used as weft in rug weaving. It comes in both solid dyed colors and natural heathers. It is spun from long-staple coarse wool to give your rugs many years of use. This yarn is heavy enough to use without multi-stranding.
How much do you need? The best solution is to do a sample and then calculate for the entire project based on the amount used for the sample. If you just need a rough estimate, a general rule of thumb for weft-faced wool rugs is 8 ounces per square foot of woven fabric.
This yarn comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process.
