This 100% cotton Rug Warp is a timeless favorite for rag rugs, Repp weave rugs, and placemats. It is a wonderfully stable warp yarn because of its tight twist and low elasticity. This yarn comes in a wide range of colors for you to match to your fabric strips or create a rainbow across the warp. Available on 8 oz tubes with approximately 840 yards per tube (1680 yards per pound).
These unmercerized 8/16 cotton yarns are amazing to work with. The yarn is soft, absorbent, and it comes in a wide range of colors. One cone is enough to weave 5-6 place mats! We are impressed with the softness of the resulting fabrics. We have also been impressed with the wash fastness of the colors.
We currently have 14 colors in stock, but we can order this yarn in any of the Maurice Brassard colors!

Unmercerized yarns weave into lovely hand and dishtowels, soft and cozy blankets for your new nephew or niece, or many other soft and absorbent uses. All colors are available on 8 oz tubes and 1.5 oz mini cones, approximately 3,360 yards per pound (1680 yards on an 8 oz tube, and approximately 320 yards on a 1.5 oz mini cone). Sett these yarns at 16 epi for lace weaves, 18-20 for plain weave, and 20-24 for twill weave structures. You can also weave with these yarns on your rigid heddle loom by doubling the yarn and using a 10 dent reed.
