Mum used to make hooked rugs and saddle blankets using raw, dyed sheep wool. You just use a small roving and burlap, the same as wool cloth but not quite so refined of course. I have one she gave me when I first got married (60 years ago). I do cherish it dearly.

Not NZ or Aus. Just plain old Alberta. My folks had sheep - I guess lots of them - when I was born and throughout my life it seems I've always managed to have at least a couple of them. Right now I've got Tunis. The babies are born red and keep their red color on their face and legs. The wool is classed as oatmeal (off white I suppose).

my apologies confused, I assumed you were from another place because you spelled Mum instead of Mom, I find most people here spell it "Mom."

oatmeal is a divine colour!

No need to apologize. I wouldn't mind being from either place. Funny you should comment on my "mum" spelling. Strangely enough, this exactly same conversation came up the other day. Somebody said it was the difference between British and American backgrounds. My dad was born in England but Mum's people came from Ont. She was a teacher. We also spelled it that way in school. Maybe it's sort of an age thing too. Words today mean entirely different things than when I was a kid. I still like all the beautiful work that these rug hooking people do though - just to get back on track.
