Carpet Woven From Fox Sheep Wool
Article Number 19268
Carpets made of fox sheep wool.
We have these carpets woven by hand in north Hesse from the light brown wool of the Coburg fox sheep. The washed wool is combed without any additional equipment and spun to a finger thick “Lunte” (fuse) consisting of 15 twined threads (Nm 5/2) which are twisted into a „Seele“ (soul) of pure linen. The fuse is mechanically tumbled and felted and then woven into an extremely durable carpet with an impressive material weight of 2.6 kg/m². The carpets handwoven from pure virgin wool are exceedingly functional: abrasion resistant, lint-free because of the tumbling and felting of the lunte and water and dirt repellant, which makes them easy to maintain. They’re also usable on both sides, and it’s in fact recommended to turn them over now and again.
