How Fine Weave Hand Woven Wool Rugs Are Made:
The process of weaving remarkable wool rugs begins when unprocessed wool arrives at the factory in large bales. The wool is then separated by hand to remove sticks and break up clumps. Next, the wool is fed into a carding machine that separates and pulls the wool into individual strands. The wool is then spun into yarn.
Before the yarn is dyed, it is first cleaned. Wool often carries dust and grease which is removed by washing it thoroughly and then sun dried.
Dyes are created using a precise combination of colors to produce the exact desired hue.The dye is then heated to a near-boiling temperature for a predetermined amount of time. The amount of time is based on the color, the type of dye and darkness desired. Once dyed, the yarn is then placed outside into the sunlight until it is completely dry.
Various designs are then created according to the client’s specification and we also create our own designs depending on current market trends. Once the design is drafted it is placed on a frame called a loom. Columns of thread (called warps) are stretched vertically on the loom. Warps are usually made of cotton, providing an ideal surface for a flat and straight rug. The weaver then secure the warps by arranging horizontal rows called wefts, ordinarily made of wool.
Typically one , two or three weavers will work on one rug together, depending on the rug size and use a scaffolding system to raise and lower themselves along the entire length of the rug.Once complete, the rug is then cut off from the loom and sent for shaving which is done by hand.A very strict quality control is then applied making sure that the rug is now complete and ready to be packaged and shipped or displayed in our rug showroom for sale at factory prices and not the inflated prices found in Rug Retailers, Interior Designers and Home Décor Stores. Cleaning a wool rug is best done outdoors where it can be soaked down with a hose after using a sponge and a mild soap detergent in warm water to clean the dirty areas.
Clients are welcome to submit their own designs and color combinations to us or alternatively we are always happy to assist you with the wide selection of our in house designs.
