The Shepherd’s Rug

A Braided Wool Rug From Roving

By Letty Klein & Ann Brown

The Shepherd’s Rug by Letty Klein & Ann Brown

Quickly and easily make salable heirloom quality rugs from wool—without special tools or supplies.

The authors provide excellent illustrations and descriptions, drawings to clarify techniques, as well as clear photos of the final product. You need no special equipment or supplies, just a knowledge of how to braid and use a sewing needle. Suggestions such as how long or thick the strands and braids need to be to start your project, and how to connect the braids, will guide you along.

The authors provide a brief description of sheep breeds and their wool traits as it relates to the art of rug making, such as: luster, texture, softness, felting ability, etc.

The Shepherd’s Rug more than pays for itself with your first rug.

Color photos; well-illustrated.

COUNTRYSIDE is the truly original country magazine (established 1917) serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance (homesteading), with emphasis on home food production. This includes gardening, small-scale livestock, cooking, food preservation, resource conservation, recycling, frugality, money management, alternative energy, old-time skills, home business, and
much more.
COUNTRYSIDE features reader-written personal experiences and photos straight out of family albums, making each issue just like a long letter from friends who are living the good life, beyond the sidewalks.

  Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die without arranging for it.

  — J. Sterling
