Wool warp, hand-dyed wool weft
40 by 45 inches, $1,500

The overall "wave" patterns in this rug are "loom controlled," that is to say, the setup of the loom yields the pattern as one weaves row by row.
This detail view shows the different wave patterns in two of the stripes, together with a section of diamonds I inserted for variety.  The heathery  effect in the color is due to using  natural gray yarn, which is natural blacks and grays carded together.
