Weaving
   
           
 

Hand woven/hand tied rugs from around 1970. the warps are cotton and the weft and pile is wool rug yarn purchased as mill ends.

They are 36 inches wide, and the one on the left is 60 inches long and the one on the right is 48 inches. Both have both cut and uncut pile and varied pile height. The pile is tied to the warp in the same technique used in oriental carpets

 
             
 

Two more rugs from the same period, in abstract patterns of cut pile.

 

 
             
 

The rug on the right combines chained uncut pile with cut pile.

The on on the left is about six feet long. A detail picture is below. The pile length is about one and one half inches, much as the scandanavian "rya" technique
