Simplicity is a powerful design influence and it is at the heart of this rug. Four colors of Quebecoise rug wool are striped in a consistent rhythm. The warp is a single color of 8/4 cotton carpet warp and the same yarn is used in plain weave for a border at each end. The majority of the weaving is a variation on plain weave that gives the rug solid structure for durability. The kit makes one hemmed rug with finished dimensions of 33.5" x 65". It can be hand washed and air dried.
You will need:
- 36" weaving width

- 432 heddles
- 4 flat, ski, or rag shuttles
Our rug uses Quebecoise Black as the main color, Brick and Dark Red as the secondary colors, and Charcoal for the accent. The carpet warp color is 13 Black.
