Floored by Design

A project I recently finished are two small area rugs, Wild Flowers. For the warp, I used Navaho rug warp (wool) and for the weft, wool roving from my Romney sheep. Wool roving are soft strands of carded wool that have not yet been spun into yarn. Wool roving has many uses, but in weaving the roving makes an especially nice weft for items such as rugs. The roving is soft and warm underfoot. The colorway for these two rugs is moss and forest greens. I was really pleased with how the rugs turned out, the colors are lush and gorgeous. The one rug is named Indian Paintbrush and the other Lupine.
