This tool is based on an old idea. The original was called a 'Catch it' tool. Rugs made using the spider are less thick than the shaggy ones, made using a rugger, and less detailed than hooked rugs. There are advantages with the spider, though it's very quick to make a rug; the cloth is absolutely secure even if the backcloth isn't filled but it''s also very easy to undo work if you're not satisfied with it. Like most other rag rug making methods, the spider is usually used to work material into a hessian backcloth. The spider is a bit fussier about material but, basically, it can work with anything that will slide through the holes and won't fall apart when it's cut into 12mm to 20mm strips, depending on it's thickness. Cotton jersey, particularly old T-shirts, suit it best but it can cope with quite a wide range of materials.
