More new rug ideas
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.
The person who donated the roving for this rug, had accidently felted it during the dying process. It was felted quite solidly and the dye uptake was uneven. I tore/cut the roving into strips and separated it into color batches. It was very easy to braid and was a n excellent way to salvage what could have been a disaster.
