About this product:
This hessian has been hemmed to make 3 customisable rag rug headbands. The pack comes with the 3 Alice bands and step by step instructions to assemble your headbands. You will need a rag rug spring tool or latch hook to complete this project, as well as fabric of your choice (although the booklet will give suggestions). If you do not already have the basic rag rug tools then you may want to consider buying this project as part of the "Rag Rug Headband Kit".
Hessian (burlap) is the base material used in traditional British rag rugging. Choosing the correct weave of hessian is incredibly important as looser weaves do not hold the rags in securely whilst tight hessian can be painful and difficult to rag rug with.
This hessian is a medium weave (10 holes per inch / 10HPI) which is perfect for both beginner and expert rag ruggers to use with a latch hook or spring tool. It is the same hessian used to make all our Ragged Life projects so you can rest assured that you're buying what the experts use.
