What’s the difference between latch hook and rag rugging?

Latch hook and rag rugging are very similar techniques as both use the same tool. The only difference is that rag rugging is considered a more modern form of latch hook because it uses fabric instead of yarn! Rag rugging kits will include strips of fabric whereas latch hook kits will include bundles of small pieces of pre-cut yarn.
