Gotland Sheep Handwoven Carpet
Article Number 40196
Swedish Gotland sheep are hornless, Swedish wool sheep which are also found in Germany in smaller numbers. They have an impressively long-growing, rather thick, curly wool fleece, varying in color from silver to blue-grey to an almost black. We have the new wool for our carpets and runners woven by hand weavers in Hesse. Without additional technical equipment the washed raw wool is combed, twisted into a finger-sited "Lunte" (fuse) of 15 twined threads (Nm 5/2) which are twisted into a "Seele" (soul) of pure linen.
