Backings & Foundations

Rug Hooking Backing Fabric

  • Scottish Burlap: made from jute, this rug backing material is easy and economical to use. 60" wide. 
  • Monks Cloth:  very popular with rug hookers, this backing for handmade rugs is made of cotton and will stretch more than the burlap, making it a little bit of a challenge for the beginner; however it is stronger and more durable than burlap.
  • Rug Warp: warp is also made of cotton, but each square is made of a thicker, sturdier thread than monk’s cloth.
  • Linen: An even weave material. Enables you to hook with both wide and narrow strips of wool.
