This rug weaving class will teach the basics of using a peg loom from artists and farmers Michael Stevens and Kathleen Wentworth of Notta Lotta Farm in Topsham, ME. You will pick your Alpaca Rug Yarn from their supply made of fiber from their own alpacas as well as other Maine alpacas. The yarns have a center core of cotton to add strength and are in lovely natural colors. You will go home with a new fantastically fun skill and a completed, beautiful, luxurious Alpaca Rug that is one of a kind. The softest rug!
Approximate finished rug size is your choice of:
26″ × 26″ (plus fringe) square
20″ × 34″ (plus fringe) rectangle
All supplies will be provided to make a solid color rug with the 1 light stripe and Mike & Kathy will have additional supplies of their handmade peg looms and super-soft alpaca fiber available to purchase at a discount so that you can stock up to keep weaving at home
Class size: maximum 6.
