As promised, here is the photo of Abstract Roses hooked in the striated dyed wool. It most definitely hooked up quickly and it was a joy to work with the wool. I used the two different colourways that Carla dyed, which you can see in my previous post. Even though there are variations of colour in the individual pieces, they blended naturally into the rose. The blended colours offered a soft transition into each petal creating interesting and unique petals, just as Mother Nature intended. As I was hooking this wool, the many possible applications of this dye technique began to inspire new rugs. The photos below show the colours that Carla dyed this past week. The blues would hook amazing waterscapes and skies, excellent greens for grasses and leaves. The warm palette of yellows, reds, pinks and oranges offer an incredible variety for florals or even scrolls. My favourite is the red and orange blend. It would make a spectacular red barn or rich red rose. Creating depth and interest in your rugs is made easy with these striated wools that provide you with instant high and low lights in a single piece of wool.
