This listing is for 1/2 yard of monks cloth. It is 100% cotton and measures 29" x 36". Cotton monks cloth is strong and durable and is a sure foundation for your hooked rugs. It has an open weave of about 12 x 13 holes per square inch.
A white thread runs about 2" apart along the length of the fabric and helps with drawing designs on the straight of grain.
This foundation fabric is used for hooking rugs and is also recommended for yarn punch needle projects.
This piece comes to you with raw edges. The edges will have to be zigzagged or serged before using. Some people tape the edges.
You can purchase my backing fabrics with serged edges. To see other sizes and other backing fabrics, see the Hooking Supplies section:

Cotton Monks Cloth is 100% cotton woven with two warp threads and two weft threads has 12 x 13 holes per inch. It is great for hooking with all cuts of wool, from fine to primitive cuts. It is less expensive than primitive linen.
Primitive linen is 100% linen, the most durable backing fabric. It is more expensive than other backing fabrics. The evenly spaced weave of 12 x 12 threads per inch makes it great for all primitive cuts, #7 and wider.
Beginners usually have an easier time hooking with linen.
Both are fine and long lasting choices for the backing to support and make your hooked rug durable. I use both types, but usually choose linen for larger projects.
Yes, if the difference is $3.00 or more. Etsy calculations, especially on orders with multiple items, can add up to more than the actual shipping. I will let you know when your order is ready to ship if you will be receiving a shipping refund.
