    Hi there
    Had a rug beater on this small rug and removed about a pound of dry soil from it, however the edge binding has started to disintegrate in places and I wonder if and where I can purchase yarn to rebind it? The face fibre is wool and the backing is cotton.

    Regards,
    Steve

    My advice Steve, would be to contact someone who specialises in rug repair, especially as this appears to be a good quality rug.

    Alan Harrison at Olney Rugs shouldn't be too far from you

    Safe and happy binding:smile:
    Ken

    This is the sort of problem you can come across on a Pakistan ( that’s what it looks like) rug. I’m afraid the repair could cost you quite a bit. Maybe £50-100 per side.
    It’s a time consuming repair.
    You must check any rug for weakness before beating and point it out to customers if you find a problem.

    You're right Robert. I took it into Olney rugs and the repair work was about that. Is it possible to buy the yarn and have a go myself?

    Anything is possible, but I think you should practice on your own piece before a customers rug.
    There are plenty of places to buy wool.
