Wool Rug

I have started a warp on the warping board to use some of the rug wool that I have in my stash. I am hoping that I can use a linen warp for the rugs. I didn't have any wool that I thought would work for the warp, only the weft, so I am trying the linen. The only thing I am concerned about is that the linen is "hairy". Although I haven't used 100% linen before, I know that it is difficult to use. That it needs to have even tension. So even though the linen is very strong, I am not sure that I will be successful using it. Time will tell!
I scanned some of the linen. You can see the how
hairy it is-wish me luck
