Yes, that’s right homespun cotton/cotton homespun…..I have no idea…I’m a wool girl myself.
Here are some close-ups of parts of the rug that were unraveled and now dried out….the rug is still wet, but some of the unraveled pieces have dried and now I can do more investigation of exactly WHAT this rug was made of and what I’ll be searching for.
First…a light blue cotton check.
Second….a navy and white cotton check.
3rd…I’m not sure what fiber this is, but since it’s a solid I’m sure I could use a wool for this one.
4th…a brown wool….I have PLENTY of that!
Here is a close up of the border made out of the homespun cottons.
A little later I’ll go back out and measure and see about how wide those cotton pieces were. I guess Pat Cross was onto something when she wrote this book and is shown using homespun, yarn and wools!
Go forth and get creative with what you hook with,
