LOONatic Mug Rug Instructions

November 8, 2019

As a result of the annual challenge by the Southern California Handweaver’s Guild of “Fowl”, the concept of our Loon Mug Rugs was hatched.  The stripes are intended to look like the neck stripes on the summer plumage of the common loon. The mug rugs shown are woven with 3/2 mercerized cotton yarn using the 5-shaft satin pattern.  When washed, the fabric has very satisfying ridges.  The 4-shaft draft will produce a flat mug rug with equally interesting color stripes with the twill stripes. Design created by Michele Belson.
