Description

This is a well woven textile of handspun wool. It is in the classic Two Grey Hills style–a central diamond shape pattern. This rug was made using natural-colored wools of white, black, brown and grey.  The border is black which enhances the serrated corner designs.

As with most of the Two Grey Hills weavers, Alice raises her own sheep, cards and cleans her handspun wool. The wool is then mixed together to create the black, grey, tan, or brown colors that are so indicative of the Two Grey Hills regional rugs. This is a beautifully woven textile.
