    All Warps-to-go are custom wound per order and are not returnable.

    Our 12/6 cotton rug warp is the highest quality warp to be found for rag rugs, due to its long fiber content and tight double twist. When woven under tight tension and with a hard beat, your rug will not buckle or ripple, but always lie flat and firm on the floor. Our stripe design is colorful and fun, or choose a solid color if you prefer, and let us know. So much opportunity for design, and making good use of cast-off clothing and other textile goods. No need to worry about the math, simply choose one of our colorways, or invent your own.

    • Warp chain - 12/6 cotton rug warp
    • Project sheet for plain weave
