Large Rugs - Part 3

The rug designs shown below were made by my Grandad. They are about 50 or 60 years old, and at the time made from spare wool after unpicking old woollen jumpers, this was of course during a period of time when World War 2 meant wool and other materials weren't as available as they are today.

This rug is about 1.5 metres long by 0.5 metres wide. This is one of the oldest rugs i believe, probably 50 or 60 years old now. As you can see it is only starting to wear at the corners and edges. This rug hasn't even been hanging on a wall, but on the hallway floor.
