DOUBLE CORDUROY PILE RUGS
Adult class 18+
In this class you will make a small version of a double corduroy rug, bag, bathmat or pillow. This 4 shaft weave structure uses wool weft to produce floats which you will cut as you weave to create a lush pile rug. The pile can be varied in length, cut or uncut, and colors can be blended and placed wherever desired. This is a simple, flexible, and very effective rug technique that all weavers should know. Because it is loom controlled, it is faster than rya knot pile.
Supplies: boat shuttle, 2 rag or ski shuttles, 1 spool 8/4 carpet warp (any color - shows only in hem), about 2 pounds rug wool for pattern weft.
