Item details

This rya rug backing was woven in Norway of heavy wool and linen. As a supplier of rya yarn, backing, needles, designs and instructions, I now carry this very hefty backing made by Rauma for your projects in 26 different sizes including round backings.

This particular backing is a horizontal rectangle: 16 inches wide and 47 inches long. Great for a wall-hanging or a narrow rug space, or maybe a parlor bench! It has 87 rows and you can make 43 knots across the row. You will probably need 12 skeins of rya rug yarn. (See my other listings for color choices.) It is a heavy weight backing--well-woven.

If you are new to rya rug making, please watch my 10 min. video if you haven't already seen it:

I will make knots for you to imitate, and make some knots where you will want to start. (You can remove them easily to make your own. I have taught hundreds of people how to make ryas, so surely I can help you!

The wool and linen backings are very difficult to find these days. This is an excellent find.

Feel free to ask questions. Many thanks for looking.
