Notes on this piece…
Since we missed yesterday’s Dose (sorry!), we thought we would share something really special with you!
Yesterday, on our day off, Joe and Elsi (our daughter) took a dump run. An interesting series of little events, led him to acquiring/rescuing this beauty, as it was already halfway into the dumpster. I’ve heard of stories like this, but never imagined we would be so lucky. When he pulled it out of the back of our truck and unrolled it on the grass, I burst into tears of amazement. It is just so beautiful!
And it’s huge! About 5′ x 10! It looks like a handspun rug weight yarn. All naturals, except for the red… very possibly Churro. There is a little bit of moth damage, but really nothing too bad.
We have done a bit of research to find out what it is and where it is from. We are pretty sure it is a Storm Pattern Variant. Maybe woven in the early 1900’s.
A true beauty! We feel so blessed to have this piece fall into our life. And we feel honored to share it with you.
