Two Grey Hills rugs are woven of natural, undyed, handspun
wool in whites, blacks, & browns. Weavers produce
subtle shades of these basic hues by carding together
various colored wools. Because of the considerable
time and effort required to prepare the wool for this
style, weavings using these yarns may cost twice as much
as those made from commercial yarns.
other styles with borders, many Two Grey Hills rugs have
a spirit line or spirit trail-- a single line of light
colored weft near the top of the design, running through
the border to the edge of the rug. This spirit line
is meant to release the weaver's creative energies from
the rug back to the Universe so that a weaver's spirit
will not be trapped within the completed rug.
