Primitive Linen

$ 4.00

This 100% linen backing is woven using 2-ply linen yarn. It works well with the #8, #9, and #10 fine Oxford Punch Needles and finer yarns. Also recommended for the Mini #14 and Mini with Heels #13 Oxford punches and fine yarns. Also great for traditional rug hooking with wider cut strips. This is an attractive backing to use when you want to punch part of your project and leave the rest of the backing showing. 64" wide. Approximately 12 threads per inch.

PLEASE NOTE: Orders for over 5 yards will come as separate cuts, not a continuous piece. This excludes the 15 yard bolt cut. Bolt orders are drop shipped and may take additional time in transit.


  • By the Yard - $39/yd
  • 15-Yard Bolt - Regularly $585. Buy the whole bolt for $525 and save $60. 

    • Pre-cut and Serged Sizes - These come with serged edges to prevent unraveling. Choose from the following sizes: 15" x 15", or 24" x 24"Please note that all pre-cut sizes are measured pre-serging. Size may vary slightly once serged.  
    • Pre-cut Unfinished Edge Sizes - These cuts have unfinished (not serged) edges and are great for small frames and hoops.

Helpful Tip: Add 5" on each side of your pattern to make sure you have enough extra to hem your rug. So if your rug is 24" x 36" your backing should be 34" x 46". Also, always measure to make sure the final size you choose will fit on your frame!
