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 / bodger. 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.
In this listing, you can buy Ragged Life hessian by the metre (as opposed to pre-hemmed pieces). These are taken from a 1 metre wide roll which means two of the edges will be selvedge (so require no hemming, see photos) but two edges with be cut and unhemmed.
If you would like a custom piece of hessian hemmed for you, please contact email@example.com directly for a personalised quote.
