Rug weaving sample

Rugs are where I'm going.

I was pretty pleased with this first attempt. It is a 12" sample. It would have been twice as long but the warp snapped about two inches in from the side, which I think was the fault of a burr in the reed. I am investigating this.

It is a twill on a linen warp with a single weft of two-ply rug wool. Took instructions from Peter Collingwood's book on rug weaving techniques.
