Valley Yarns 40th Anniversary #11 Optical Twill Rug PDF
The Optical Twill Rug from Valley Yarns is a gorgeous, high quality rug with a clean and modern design. Weaving a rug is one of the great satisfactions of a weaving life, and weaving a rug designed by Jason Collingwood is the way to go. Jason has designed this beautiful rug in honor of WEBS 40th Anniversary using Collingwood Rug Wool; a yarn produced in collaboration with Valley Yarns. This is truly a project made in heaven.
