There are two types of wool cells in natural wool; orthcortex and paracortex. Both these cells lie on opposite sides of the fiber and grow at a different level. It causes a coil spring which makes the wool elastic. Wool fiber has the capacity to stretch more than 30% and still return to the normal shape. The shock absorber makes the fiber return to its original form.
Here, you will have a long, slightly thick strip ready for you. All you have to do is swirl it into a round or oval shape and sew with needle and thread to keep it in place.
Now place the carpet (runner) along the entire staircase. Starting from bottom, tie the carpet to the tack strips, step-by-step. Fix it permanently in place using a hammer, in the corners where it will be folded. Stretch it into place using a knee kicker or a seaming iron. Repeat this at each tread before attaching the carpet to the tack strip on the next tread.
Here the yarn is dipped into a bath of the dye. A vat (large vessel to store liquids) is used in this process. The yarn is placed into the vat containing dye and heated with extreme pressure. The pressure forces the dye into the fibers, coloring them. The yarn is then spun to remove excess water and heated to dry the color. This method is commonly used for dyeing wool, acrylic, polyester and nylon fabric. These dyed yarns are more susceptible to fading, bleeding of color and staining however, it largely depends on the type of fiber and dye.
