This is the second rug in the tie-dye pair using the that special tie-dye yarn. I think I’m even more excited about it than the first one.
Aside from the gorgeous color of the yarn, I like how it goes from horizontal stripes to vertical stripes and back to horizontal stripes again.
Close up of the vertical stripes:
I had been saving the black yarn for something special, and this is definitely it. I don’t really remember where it came from – likely part of a batch of other yarns I acquired. It has a shininess to it and I first had thought that it was some sort of synthetic yarn. I did a burn test on the yarn and it definitely has the properties of wool. Perhaps it is some sort of blend, but primarily wool. I suppose it doesn’t matter that much if the outcome is right.
It might be a while before the next rug – I’m embarking on an ambitious project involving lots of kludges, fixes, and jury rigging on the loom. Hoping for fabulous results.
