I love weaving with this chunky wool from Selbu minimill. Weaving is incredibly fast and the yarn is soft and lovely to work with. I am using these old shuttles crafted many, many years ago, for weaving rag rugs on this old loom. They are perfect, sliding fast and easy,
This is going to be a large carpet, 135 x 190 cm with fringes. The chunky wool yarn itself has a lovely color, with fine variations in shades of grey and it comes in big rolls. The wool is from old Norwegian sheep, a primitive race dating back to Viking age. Fancy reading more about this type of wool? Have a look at this blog post.
The warp is unbleached linen and the weft is this thick wool – completely natural and without any chemical treatments.
Quality control was very satisfied with the result and it was quite sad to send this warm and lovely carpet to the customer. I think we will need one for our own home!
