A Plethora of Peculiar Projects- Part 10 (AKA Frankenstein Fleece)

More close-up photos of the finished rug...

 
...with its various staple lengths and mixed coloration.

 
The 'boingy bits' of a raw fleece rug are always my favorite parts...

 
...and this one had a lot of them! :)

 
It's a very thick and luxurious rug to walk on...

 
...and, oddly enough, quite the softest one I've ever made.

 
The finished rug...

 
...shown here with its 'suture material'...

...variegated green wool yarn! :)

Rachel-It's silky smooth! :)

That should be super to step out on, when you first wake up, during the very cold Winter mornings. :)

I love the coloring in this rug too.

Sandie--I really love the golden bits! I wonder what this sheep looked like?!? :)

Thanks, Deborah! I certainly despaired mid-project, but I'm happy that I persisted.
