Medium Wool Rug in Natural Browns Stripes
//A new Artisan Direct listing from our partners in Momostenango!//
Handwoven in Momostenango using only 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, dye-free!
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.
100% local wool for both warp and weft.
Care: Machine-washable in a gentle cycle or wool cycle in cold water with gentle detergent. Line dry. Best to limit washing; here's how to do that.
Width: 33.5 inches
Length: 61 inches
