Ironing the strips is very important because it will help to keep the strips straight and braiding can be done smoothly. Fold the strips in half, lengthwise, and iron them. Open the strip and fold the long edges to the center crease. Close it properly and iron once again.
If you have a decorative lamp or an accent table and you want to draw attention towards it, simply place a small area rug underneath it!
Cut wool strips of about 3-4 inches wide to a length of your choice. You can use old wool blankets or other woolen clothing, but take care that the fabric is not completely worn out as it may tear the rug. You can even contact your local dealer for used blankets which is of no use to them. If you want to make a rug matching your home decor, you can always buy wool in various colors.
This is the most common method of dyeing used all over the world. It is also called spun dyeing or dope dyeing. In simple terms, the fibers or threads are dyed, which spreads the dye throughout the fabric. A colored pigment is mixed with the polymer from where the yarn fibers are weaved into each other. This causes the color to become an inherent part of the fibers and does not remain only at the surface as what can occur in post-dyeing. The color permanently sticks to the fibers and is not affected by washing the fabric or exposing it to sunlight. The only drawback of solution dyeing is that dyeing colors available are very limited.
