ENCAMPMENT RIVER PEBBLE RUGS
ENCAMPMENT RIVER RAGGIE RUGS
In the mid 1980's I was first shown how weave with the fleeceweaving
method. In 1991 after moving to Wyoming and setting up my weaving
studio, I happened to be watching the Encampment River from the foot
bridge on the trail. Looking into the very clear water below, I thought a
rug with those multicolored pebbles would really be beautiful.
Home I went to experiment, and
The Encampment River Pebble Rug was born.
|Here in our weaving studio we operate six to eight floor looms weaving
many rugs every year. We have added the "Raggie" rugs to our line.
They are a flat woven rug using the carded or teased fleece for the
weft. In 2005 we added needlefelting to our rugs. This lets me use the
rugs a canvas to paint on with my dyed fibers and yarns, making a one
of a kind rug even more special.
The rugs shown below are a sampling of the styles that we weave here
in our studio. To order a rug from us, email us for photos of rugs in
stock or request a custom order. We offer rugs in approximate sizes
of 24 inches, 28 inches, 36 inches and any length up to 12 feet.
Widths will vary with the thickness of the rovings we are weaving with.
For Specially dyed colors in your rug, see below...
|We weave Fleecewoven Pebble Rugs in the approximate
sizes of 22"-24" wide, at $25.50 per foot, 28"-30" at
$30.50 per foot and 36"-38" at $35.50 per foot. This rug
is very thick and heavily textured.
The Flat Fleecewoven rugs called "Raggies" in the
approximate sizes of 22"-24" wide, at $20.50 per foot,
28"-30" at $25.50 per foot, and 36"-38" at $30.50 per
foot. This rug has texture, but no distinct pebbles, and
is not nearly so thick as the Pebble Rug.
To use Specially Dyed Roving for your Rug, we have to
charge an added fee of $5.00 per foot to cover the
additional time and cost of dyeing up the special colored
Contact us with your wish,
and we will see if we can fill it!!!
If you wish Needlefelted designs added, send your
design and we will do our best, or ask for something you
see, or would like us to design......Needlefelting starts at
$20.00 extra cost for simple designs and goes up as the
design gets more complicated.
|To the left is our new Handspun
2-3-4 ply Handwoven Wool
These can be any length you
wish and will be a multi colored
rug, normally a darker rug. The
prices are listed below.
We can dye, spin, and weave
your choice of colors, or use
your fleece.......Spinning adds
and additional cost of $55.00 per
pound for the rug weaving wool
yarns. We will invoice you for
the cost of your requested rug.
We are now using Supersized
Yarns spun by Carol for a one of
a kind rug....
|2017 finds us designing a new yarn....SuperSized Bubble
Yarn will be on the market...hopefully...in 2018. It would work
great for knitting up the Giganto Items that are so popular.
