Here are three oval spiral rugs, each done in a different technique.
This is an Icelandic Rug, roving was donated by
Marty Favre, Fence Row Farm, Charlotte, MI. It is an
oval spiral rug in 3 colors and weighs about 4 pounds.
I started this rug by braiding 40 yards of white roving from a commercial flock of sheep. Then I "Painted" the braids, using the same technique used to paint roving or yarn.
