I am about halfway around the Homeplace rug doing the edge-whipping with wool yarn. I thought you might like to see the finishing that I do for a floor rug. : )
I chose a gray-brown wool to whip the edge. I often don’t use “matching “wool for the edge-whipping but something that just blends with the last rows of hooking.
Rug Tape is first hand-sewn around the rug edge close to the last line of hooking! I whip over both the tape and the backing underneath as I think it makes a stronger, more protected edge.
Happy Hooking!! Sunnie : )
