Dark Grey Rugs

I finally finished the second group of wool rugs. The wool for these varies from a very dark brown, almost black to dark greys flecked with tan or brown. I love the colors. The really dark fleeces come from the first shearing of the black lambs. Most sheep's wool turns grey after that first shearing so those really dark colors are in short supply.
Now to get the fringes knotted and the hems hemmed and wash them all. I hope to have some of these dark ones and some of the lighter greys from the previous warp ready for market this weekend.
