It was so flippin’ fun to learn how to crochet a rug last weekend with selvedge scraps from Pendleton Woolen Mills that would’ve otherwise headed to the landfill! (I wonder how much a 100% wool rug like this would cost new? 🤔) This is the thickest, softest, cushiest rug I’ve ever stepped on, and we learned all kinds of amazingness about wool at our class. It’s fire-resistant (makes a great spark-resistant rug in front of a fireplace!), it’s an odor neutralizer (it will absorb the odor in a room and neutralize it), and its lanolin kills fleas (one of these rugs would make a sweet doggy bed...). I’m thinking chair cushions next.... . . . #nowaste #wastenotwantnot #naturalfibers #makeityourself #diy #ragrug #thefarwoods #thefarwoodsmakes #creativereuse #crochetrug #pendletonwool #pendleton #pendletonscraps #reusereducerecycle #reducereuserecyle #scrapbuster #scrapbusterproject
