Dotted Line Rug

Amy Tyson

Recently we had a chance to make this rug in Black and Grey. We’ve already woven a few with the Navy dots and mustard lines. Plus, we did a custom red and gold version.

Meredith gets really excited to weave.

The pattern fairly simple so we can weave it on our one Dobby loom, Gladys. We don’t need a bunch of harnesses and a computer.

We didn’t expect this design to be so popular! What other colors could work for this?

Pink for Nursery

Amy Tyson

We recently wove this custom Twisp 5 for a nursery project in New York. We had a cone of pink yarn that we've been holding on to for a while for exactly this opportunity. To keep it from being too pink, we wove a sample option with pink and white stripes and that's what the client decided on.

Here's a video of Meg weaving. The pattern is the computer. So as she using the foot pedals to open and close the shed, the computer knows to advance to the next row. This rug is over 11' wide.
