This modern style rug uses Navaho Warp sett at 6 epi as your warp. The weft is Rug Wool in one main color (ours is natural), one secondary color (black for our rug), and 12 (count 'em!) accent colors. The rug is double-faced, with a slightly different arrangement of the blocks on the reverse. Rug wool is made with a long-staple, coarse wool, so this is a rug that is made for use. Finished measurements for the rug are 33.5" x 59.5".
You will need:
- 36" weaving width
- 4 harnesses
- 12 or 6 dent reed
- 215 heddles
- 4 flat, ski, or rag shuttles (or a combination of them)
- boat shuttle
We used natural for the main color, black for the secondary color, and six light/dark pairs for the twelve accents. If you would like the colors as shown, simply order the kit above.
