This rya rug backing was woven in Sweden of heavy wool and cotton. As a supplier of rya yarn, backing, needles, designs and instructions, I now carry this very hefty backing in a bolt to hem it to any size you request.
This particular backing is 24 inches (or 60 cm) wide. It has about 24 rows to the foot and you can make 66 knots across a row.

I can make knots for you to imitate, and make some knots where you will want to start. (You can remove them easily to make your own. i have taught hundreds of people how to make ryas, so surely I can help you!
Quality rya backing is very difficult to find these days. This is an excellent find. And newly woven in Spring 2022!

Beyond grateful for this store that keeps this fibre art alive!
I am very happy with this purchase. The quality of the backing and yarn is outstanding. The directions are extensive and clear. I was especially pleased that Melinda started the first 6-8 stitches so it was clear where to start and what yarns to use. Oops! I didn’t mean to send two almost identical reviews and I’ve got a much better photo of the way I’m organizing the yarn which is in an upside down rattan side table left over from 1970’s. My excuse is that I’m new to reviewing and sending photos. I hope I can get the new photo to this site
I loved working up this kit! The instructions are clear, the knot easy to make. It was fun to see how the different combinations of yarn colors worked up. I ran short of one collection of yarns-all I needed was three lengths of yarn. I contacted Melinda and she sent them to me immediately. Now, the debate is who gets the finished project! My son seems to think it would look good made into a pillow for his office, I am thinking wall hanging in my studio................we'll see!
I love this needle block. I enjoy doing needle work, and this block is perfect for having my threaded needles right at hand. Well made. Quick to ship.
