Medium Natural Wool Rug in Ash + Brown

Handwoven in Momostenango using natural sheep colors for both the warp and weft. The fibers have been hand-spun into yarn first, then woven on a footloom, and felted to ensure durable use. We love that the beautiful colors are completely natural!

Please note that on this piece, one of the ends of the rug features stripes in more blueish tones rather than brown. It's a beautiful transition of colors, and though not immediately noticeable, we think it's a fun unique touch. It is likely a result of the weaver running out of the dark brown wool during weaving.

Momostenango is a town in the highlands of Guatemala known for their work with wool. To weave with hand-spun wool for the warp is a challenging feat, and many weavers opt instead for commercial cotton thread for the warp. But we've selected our favorites in 100% natural and local wool. We love the end result especially with the felting, as fibers lock together and make the rug more durable.

Machine-washable in gentle cycle or wool cycle in cold water with gentle detergent. Line dry.
