New Rug Technique

The Shepherds Rug announces an exciting new rug design. This is an Annie Brown original technique.

The rug is rustic, light-weight and durable, perfect for that cabin in the woods or cottage on a lake as well as in your own home or apartment.

Annie worked many hours developing this new and very unique technique for making a wool rug. She first felted batts of wool from our own sheep’s fleece, then cut the batts into strips, crocheted the strips into an oval or round design, and finally felted the whole rug again.

Annie will have several or these rugs for sale at the Montpelier Station, VA and SAFF festivals. Be sure to see these rugs in person. Check out our ETSY store to see even more examples of this new technique.
