I've been weaving my wool rugs from Joel's handspun wool from our sheep for 20 years. I have used various twill patterns, often Rosepath, but also many others. When I started making rag rugs I wanted to do something different and when I stumbled on double binding in an old issue of Handwoven magazine that was what I wanted to do. Recently Joel asked me if I'd ever considered weaving the wool rugs in double binding. So, I'm putting on a warp in stripes of various neutral colors in double binding and will weave blocks of various shades of light and dark greys and white. I'm excitied to see how they will come out. I'll keep you posted.
