Basket Overview



Before buying your first Ragged Life Rag Rug Kit, you may want to use our "Kit Decision Tree" to help you decide which kit is best for you. Or read our handy guide explaining the differences between all our great kits over on the Ragged Life Blog here



Please note that this kit does not include fabric. We believe that one of the joys of rag rugging is in using up old clothing and offcuts that you have lying around (it's great for making you reevaluate your wardrobe). 

You can use any fabric to rag rug with (jersey, cotton, lycra, velvet, fleece etc...), but we recommend that beginners start with thinner fabrics such as t-shirt material and cotton. If you'd like to buy fabric for rag rugging then take a look at our 100% Wool Blanket Yarn, which is super soft to rag rug with.



We love to keep our customers happy, which is why we always aim to get our orders out within two days of purchase. Once your parcel has been sent, you will receive a confirmation email and your order will generally arrive 2 - 3 days later if you are in the UK.

Introductory Rag Rug Kit


How Many Would You Like?

About this kit: 

Our classic Ragged Life "Introductory Rag Rug Kit" is perfect for anyone looking to try out rag rugging for the first time. 

Here's what is included:  

- Latch Hook  - the most basic tool to do the three main rag rug techniques - shaggy (proggy), short shaggy (our invented technique) and loopy (hooky). The latch hook is a little slower to work with than some of our other amazing rag rug tools (the Rag Rug Spring Tool or Rug Hook, for example), but does get the job done with a little patience and care. 

Rag Rug Gauge  - this is a time- and effort-saving tool to make cutting up your fabric pieces for shaggy and short shaggy rag rugging that little bit easier. Our wooden gauge cuts fabric pieces to approximately 7.5cm (which is the perfect length for rugs, cushions, wreaths and more). It has a wide, deep groove to prevent your fabric scissors getting blunted. 

Marker Pen - for sketching your design onto the hessian.

100 x 60cm Hemmed Rug Hessian - our hessian is the perfect weave for rag rugging (10 holes per inch) and is entirely pre-hemmed and prepared so you can start rag rugging straight away.

-Rag Rug Techniques Booklet - includes step-by-step instructions and photos of how to do the shaggy, short shaggy and loopy rag rug techniques, as well as advice on spacing, troubleshooting and more. 

- Exclusive access to the Kit Companion page on the Ragged Life website  - this login-protected area of the website includes videos introducing the equipment, advice on fabric usage, tips for creating strips for rag rugging, 'how to' videos, design tips for beginners, FAQs and much much more. It's a treasure trove of rag rug knowledge. 


Kit Add-On Discount: 

Add any piece of additional hessian (cushion, wreath, bouquet, XL hessian, pre-printed etc...) to your cart for 25% off that second piece of hessian. This means you've got your next project lined up after you complete your first! 

Discount valid with the purchase of any Ragged Life Adult Kit and automatically applies at checkout.
