I came across a Nain rug (dimensinos: about 350x250cm) that I am rather keen on. The seller tells me that it is a 6LA, and based on the number of threads on the fringe (3 threads), it agrees with what the seller says. However, the thread-count for this rug is low, at about 225kpsi, i.e. more consistent with a 9LA rug.
So is this rug a low quality 6LA Nain rug? Or a 9LA rug with a fake fringe (is this even possible)?
Thanks!

If there are three threads and in each of these three if you unravel them there will most likely be 3 strands (3 ply). This would make it 9LAA.

I'd say it's probably a 9LAA at that knot count.

I have not seen a 6la with such a low kpsi. I agree with little-persia.

Thanks Little-Persia and KAD. You are both right, I returned to the shop and had fringe threads checked again - it is indeed a 9La.
