This sofa throw or knee rug, is soft and lightweight and would be perfect to snuggle under in front of an open fire. By simply placing on the back of your favourite chair it is all ready for use as well as adding another detail to enhance your room. A sofa throw is a handy item to throw over your knees as the chill sets in, or just to feel comfortable and warm.
I have woven this knee rug in a twill pattern which shows off the colours and texture well. The rug has been hand dyed in purple with lime stripes which have a light and a dark grey accent.
- Yarn type : Maniototo Wool Yarn
- Colours : Mid Purple / Lime / Grey
- Size: 60″ x 41” (152 x 104 cm), excluding the fringe
- Fringe : Yes, ″ (5 cm)
- Care : Gently handwash in warm water. After final rinse place knee rug on a quick light spin in washing machine to remove excess water. Dry flat in shade.
The yarn that has been used for this sofa throw is New Zealand Maniototo wool. This is from sheep farmed in Central Otago. The sheep have been especially bred to create the softest of wools. On the border of the lime stripes is a wool boucle yarn also dyed lime this adds a lovely small textural affect.
The size of this sofa throw is 60 by 41 inches (152 by 104cm). This excludes the fringe which is 1 inch (2.5cm) long. It has been hand hemstitched at either end.
You will need to gently hand wash in warm water. Rinse the sofa throw and to help with the ease of drying you can put the rug in a quick light spin in the washing machine to remove excess liquid. Then dry flat out of the sunlight.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
