In case you are interested ....

I placed a new Free Download pattern (http://www.vintageknitcrochet.net/products/free-crochet-checkerboard-rug-pattern-woolco-leaflet-2231.html) in my shop this morning for a checkerboard area rug that is worked in Carpet Warp.

There is also a blog post (http://bitsofhistory.vintageknitcrochet.net/2017/10/woolco-brand-carpet-warp-by-january.html) with just a bit of product information about this vintage 1950's Woolco Leaflet.

I have not seen an answer to the question of "What is carpet warp?" I have never heard of it either. Anybody?
From what little i see..carpet warp is type of rug yarn. I haven't been able to find a substitute in my quick look. Looks like we need to do a little more research. Hope that helps a bit

The carpet wrap I know of is the protectant placed on the back of a rug.

If you need to, you are more than welcome to click on TodaysTreasure name next to the post and send a private message with the question.

Just did an internet search and Maysville creates a carpet wrap yarn which is made of cotton.

Maysville 8/4 Cotton Carpet Warp Yarn at WEBS | Yarn.com (http://www.yarn.com/product/webs-weaving-yarns-maysville-84-cotton-carpet-warp/)
