Hi all, I've been thinking about a rya project. I raise Icelandic sheep and am wondering if I could use locks in a rya rug. Ive seen the knots used, but was wondering the best way to keep the lock structure intact.
I have used a fleece, not Icelandic, with a staple length of about 5-6 inches and just laid a lock around every two warps. These were then held in place with several rows of tightly packed plain weave. I'm using the resultant fabric for a loom bench cushion. Sheds somewhat, but I brush it once in a while. You'll have to test the thickness of lock need to use for the effect you want.
I have also done rya rugs with yarn, but those were knotted. If you really want a secure structure as for a rug, I would knot the locks just as you would knot yarns.
