You've probably read a bit about my unique background with rya rug making... These backings are original handwoven backings from Sweden. They measure 63 cm x 100 cm or 24" x 40". They are beautiful heavy wool and Irish linen woven backings. It is dificult to find good backings these days--almost impossible. These are the real deal and when they are gone, I don't know where I'll find more.

They will require about 15 skeins of rya rug yarn to complete knotting them with approx 1 1/2" pile.

In addition to the backing you will receive 15 skeins to complete your project. You can look at all the colors listed in the 4-skein groupings to choose your colors. Note at the end of each write up I have color numbers which correspond to the yarn. You can order by color number in any quantities up to 15 skeins.

I realize this could be confusing for you, but don't worry. I can help you and I can send you a digital photo of the colors you choose before hand so you can see how they all look together. I've done this professionally for years, so I really know how to help you through the ordering process.

You may have questions...don't hesitate to ask. I also have needles @ 25 cents and rya graph paper for $1. Ask anything.
