The drawing, colors, and pattern of this rug are excellent. The blue is dark Prussian blue. The light blue is not wool and feels like silk, but it may be mercerized cotton or synthetic. Note, only the light sky blue is not wool. The use of vivid colors is one of the best qualities in tribal rugs. (web blog link to afghan weavers) The freedom of expression and joy of life expresssed in vivid colors, like the light blue and pink in this rug (or the flourescents in other rugs and bags) give this rug a vitality not found in workshop and city rugs. The scattering of small areas of bright colors on dark field works very well, and has a n overall most beautiful effect.
Wool: good and a little dry. Sheen: Okay Handle: Floppy but with strong body. Selvedge: Tightly bound braided goat hair with remarkably straight braid running along top of selvedge.
Fringe: Top is classic braided closure used to secure warps on top of loom, blue kilim with yellow stripe. Bottom has blue and yellow kilim with wool Persian closure and short fringe. Pile: 6mmWarp: Classic warp of Ten Tank rugs. It is a straigth fiber brown wool with a ropey texture.Weft: Multi colored cotton and wool. Some chartreuse at bottom. Double wefted throughout.
Warp Depression:45 to 60 degree warp depression, so mostly the second node is hidden below upper knots.
