This was my first woven project from about June 2007.
Mini-rug 10"x12" hand spun wool, brown alpaca, handwoven on a loom made from a picture frame. Actually, I bought a canvass on a stretcher frame and removed the canvass.
The wool is 3 plied using the navajo plying method. The alpaca is 2 ply using outside and inside ends from a center pull ball.
I warped it continuous warp style. The fringe occurred when I cut it off the frame. I used little string loops called string heddles and a shed stick on the loom.
After studying the Marla Mallett site and the Taos Trading Post site, I was inspired to weave the tiny rug. It was fun!
