Beautiful balls

Got the first wool rug done.  Love the texture and heaviness of it.  I have to get some black warp before I weave any more as I think it would do better.  I was amazed how much it took to make the rug.  I ended up with a 33 inch rug for this first one.  I figure out of the 23 pounds of wool I will get 10 to 12 rugs.  Maybe more or less depending on how long I make them.


  1. They look great to me! How many ends per inch did you use? I've used 6 and 12 for loopers and rags, and was "assuming" the selvage would use about the same? Inquiring minds want specifics. ;)

  2. This is weird that I can't even leave a comment on my own dang blog unless I do it anonymous. Thats why the test up there. Mike how do you leave comments. I will answer your question in next blog post. dc
