As a fiber artist, I am always looking for ways to craft wool. I have been rug braiding with wool material for several years. When I saw a friendís shepherd rug, I decided that my wool would make ideal shepherd rugs. To define: shepherd rugs use wool roving instead of material to braid into rugs. The bright plaited roving and needle felted picture makes a unique rug or wall hanging. Braiding and sculpting with wool is an enjoyable way to unleash my creativity.
