23"x48" including fringe
Inspired by the lighthouse keeper's cottage on Seguin Island our easy-to-weave area rugs bring the warmth and charm of the Maine coast to your home. Woven to last in Halcyon's Signature Rug Wool. The Seguin Cottage Hearthside Rugs are a fun way to learn several basic rug weaving techniques: plain weave, boundweave twill and soumak. Each finished rug measures approximately 23" x 48" including the braided fringe.
The "Signal Rug" is woven on a cream white base. The symmetrical ray design reflects the extraordinary First Order Fresnel lens that has served as a beacon to sailors at the mouth of the Kennebec River since 1857. This irreplaceable lens is the only one in Maine and and its light can be seen over 20 nautical miles away.
The "Coastline Rug" is woven on a natural heather grey base. Its gradations of blue and green, climbing steps of soumak and dotted color bars evoke the climb from sea to sky as visitors traverse the lush green hiking trails that navigate the 64 acres of Seguin Island.
You will need a four shaft loom with a minimum weaving width of 24", a reed that allows for four doubled ends per inch (4 or 8 dent is best) and four ski shuttles.
