Unmercerized 8/4 Cotton Yarn

September 20, 2019

8/4 Unmercerized Cotton Yarn, also known as “Carpet Warp” is the traditional favorite for warp in rag rugs, and a very popular choice for rep rugs and place mats. The tight twist and low elasticity makes it a good choice for rug warp.  It is also ideal for making string heddles for your inkle loom, a spare drive band for your spinning wheel, or any other use where you need a tightly spun yarn.  Please note that this yarn is not as strong as seine twine.
