SALES
 Some of my rug designs are available for immediate shipment; most others can be woven to order (allow 6-8 weeks). Designs can be woven in sizes 24 to 72 inches ( 2 to 6 feet) wide and up to 120 inches (10 feet) long. I dye all the yarn myself and will be happy to match colors to your needs. Prices $120 to $150/square foot.

Some of my rugs and all of my tapestries are one-of-a-kind; please call or email regarding availability and pricing.

RUG CARE
I design my rugs for placement on the floor, where viewers looking from different angles as they sit or stand or move around a room will see subtle shifts in the colors and patterns. Many of my designs include heathery or variegated effects so the rug will not easily show the dirt and litter of foot traffic. The continuous warp results in finished edges, or selvages, on all four sides and enables tight packing of the weft yarn so that it cannot shift or abrade under foot traffic, which ensures the durability of these rugs for use on the floor.

My rugs can also be enjoyed as wall hangings. They are reversible, with the colors and patterns the same on both sides, but on request I can attach a fabric sleeve to one side to be equipped with a wooden batten for hanging.

On a smooth wood or tile floor, a mat under the rug prevents slippage. On carpeting, a mat protects the rug from wearing against the carpet. If chair or table legs are placed on the rug, rubber coasters will spread their weight and soften any sharp edges. Occasional vacuuming suffices for ordinary cleaning. Spot stains can be removed with mild soap and water, blotted with toweling. More thorough cleaning can be performed by dry cleaning or washing with wool soap and cold water. As the rugs are so thick and dense, it may take several hours for water to penetrate, so overnight soaking is helpful.  Hung over a railing, a rug will dry overnight in dry weather.
