Basic Knowledge of Tufting Cloth
As a background for a rug, we recommend using the primary tufting fabric. This cloth allows you to make mistakes, is durable and long-lasting and made of high-quality fabric.
You can stretch your cloth with the yellow weft yarn insert at 5 cm intervals. It will help you keep your design in its place.
Basic Knowledge of Yarn
Depending on the rug you are making, you may choose a different yarn.
The acrylic yarn feels soft and cheap. As a beginner, you can try out all techniques and not spend too much.
Cheap acrylic yarn will wear off quickly and leave a fuzzy layer. Make sure you buy quality acrylic yarn.
Cotton yarn is only for wall-hanging pieces. They are too fragile to be used on the floors. A rug made from cotton yarn will not last very long.
Can use wool yarn for wall hanging and rug making, they are not much harder than acrylic yarn but more resistant and environment-friendly. We chose wool yarn to be our shop’s main product.
