      Wow, it is fantastic!
      Is it silk?
    4. troydoug troydoug, 6 years ago
      Im not sure it is very soft and silky so I assume yes Thank You racer!!

      Actually i think it is wool??

      It may possibly be a mix (wool warp, silk weft) but these rugs were normally silk.
      It has a sheen like silk, for the weft pattern at least.
      There are some tests but a simple one which might give you a better idea is to pull the rug across the weft and then the warp. Wool will move a bit, silk will not as it is not as elastic. Which is which? The warp is lengthways and the weft the pattern which is shuttled side to side.
