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 for your projects in 26 different sizes including round backings.

This particular backing is 38 inches wide and 64 inches long, perfect for rug or wall-hanging. It has 119 knottable rows and you can make 107 knots across the row. If you use two strands of yarn on the needle (as many Norwegians do) you will need about 28 skeins of Norwegian yarn .) If you use three strands on the need, you will probably need 40 or more skeins of Norwegian rya rug yarn. If you use or blend in Swedish style yarn (Asborya, Frosta,or Lundgrens) use would need less yarns since they all have about 100 M per skein while the Norwegian yarn has 75 meters/skein. (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: http://youtu.be/trl3V5Q2kG4

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.

I also have Rauma backings in the following approx. sizes. Most are on hand, and some I will have to order which could take 3-4 weeks or more. Sizes are close to the listings, but may be off by a few cm. Ask me to measure your backing for an exact width/length if sizing is important to be exact.
