This Week on the Loom
With lots of weaving wool spun the loom has been busy. This rug is woven using all hand spun wool from my sheep.
The wool I'm using for this rug is white English Leicester and the grey wool is from an English Leicester Cross sheep. The English Leicester is so strong and hard wearing and perfect for floor rugs. I have hand woven rugs I made 30 years ago and the rugs have been in use constantly since then.
The rug will be finished today and ready for the Arts Centre Market on Sunday. The weaving was going to be completed last night but Brie and I watched Persuasion and I knitted a red scarf.
