This is one of the rugs from the collection Waves and Stripes. I named it Frozen River. I created this small collection thinking of waves in nature: waves of the sea, of sand, or of grass or wheat when the wind blows over a field. To create such waves, I used a few different methods. To create waves of color I either put two strands of yarn together or used one strand at a time but changed the color frequently. Every time one strand ends and the next one begins, they are overlapped and sewn together. To create waves in texture, I deliberately cut the fabric into varying widths or used different kinds of fabric. You can easily see variations in fabric thickness on some rugs in the collection. Variations in fabric thickness also cause slight variations of rug width: where yarn is thicker, the rug becomes a bit wider; where the yarn is thinner or softer, the rug is more narrow. This creates the effect of waves along the sides of the rug. This rug is handknitted from repurposed t-shirts. One of the pictures shows how these rugs are made: from lots and lots of strands of yarn and with a lot of patience! This versatile and practical rug would work as an area or accent rug in any room of your house, as a bathroom mat, as a doormat, or even as a patio rug or a play mat. The rug is very durable and easy to care for. The colors: white, teal, turquoise. This particular rug is knitted with two strands of yarn at a time. Please keep in mind that colors may look somewhat different on different monitors. Size: Appr. 26.5" long; 19"-20" wide Care: Machine washable and dryable. When you take the rug out of the dryer, give it a shake to help it get back into its right shape. Or you can remove the rug from the dryer when it is almost dry, reshape it, and let it dry completely flat. All t-shirts are washed before they are put into a rug. All rugs are washed after they are finished. The rug does not come with any non-slippery backing/lining. For your safety, please make sure you always put the rug on a non-slippery surface or use a non-slippery backing.
