Handwoven and hand dyed wool and mohair
Photographed by Joe Mendoza
With this rug, I was playing with stripes of different textures in the same golden yellow color. I dyed both fibers with the same yellow dye then wove them together in alternating stripes of mohair and wool. My friend who owns this rug tells me that her daughters enjoy wiggling their toes in the luxuriously fuzzy mohair. Delicious. Dyed and woven in the autumn, I was channeling aspen and cottonwood leaf colors of the Rocky Mountains.
