12/6 Cotton Seine Twine is a very tightly twisted yarn used for warp. It has very little stretch and stands up well to high tension, so it is frequently used as warp for tapestry weaving or rug weaving. It is also a good choice if you need to make your own string heddles. The natural color is more economical and a good choice for warp in weft-faced projects where the warp won't show. The dyed colors of seine twine make a great alternative to 8/4 carpet warp in rep woven rugs. The tight twist means the yarn wears like iron.
