Gotland Wool Rug Yarn

Still River Mill in Connecticut has processed a lovely Gotland core spun wool rug yarn for our farm using our own wool. The yarn is core spun with Romney wool wrapped around the center core and Gotland wool spun as the outer layers. Each bump of yarn showcases the three shades of Gotland gray from very pale silver to darker gray. This chunky yarn is perfect for weaving. The woven fabric gradually changes from one shade of gray to another. The yarn weaves up into lovely cozy rugs. Each bump weighs about 2 pounds and weaves a small rug of about 2 ft. x 4 ft. (Weaving dimensions vary depending upon how tightly you pack your weft.)

Would you like to own a Gotland wool rug but do not want to weave it yourself? We are happy to weave a rug for you. We charge $25/square foot for a finished woven rug. Email Kim at info@grandviewfarmvt.com to inquire about purchasing a finished rug.

Once you have your hand woven rug, we suggest you care for it by:
-shaking it out regularly
-put a nonslip mat underneath it
-never use the brush attachment on your vacuum
-dry clean when needed
-hang it outside in the sun for several hours once a year.
