Mini Sheaves of Wheat by Weaving Southwest

Mini Sheaves of Wheat by Weaving Southwest

Notes on this piece…

This little piece is a take on our Sheaves of Wheat design, woven by one of our weavers.

If we are being honest here, and we always are, this piece is actually a great example of what to do when something goes wrong on the loom. This was intended to be a 74″ long piece, duplicating this design on the other end. However, the warp went bad about halfway through the rug and it was unfixable. So, our weaver cut it off the loom, unraveled a bit and turned it into this little cutie!

Click here to see the “companion” rug (aka, the rug that bade it off the loom, once a fresh warp was put on).

Enjoy!
