Should I buy Wool Carpet?
People have produced wool carpets for more than eighty centuries. When civilisation first adopted cattle and learned how to shear their soft wool, the resource was implemented into different works of weaving. Wool carpets are predominantly weaved from sheep’s fur. Today, New Zealand’s breed, the Merino, is thought to be of best quality by many, but other breeds, such as the Shetland Wool from the Scottish Highlands, and the Merino sheep in Saxony, Vermont, South Africa and the island of Tasmania are no further behind. Other than sheep wool, you can find different carpets weaved from the hair of other animals, such as llamas, alpacas, goats, camels and angora rabbits. Wool carpets are naturally resistant and highly durable. And, guess what – the material is a replenishable amenity.

Knot Density

Knot density refers to the number of knots per square inch in a handmade rug. It is measured by counting the number of knots per linear per inch along the warp and weft (you can see it in the back of the rug) and then multiply the numbers. Knot density is a factor in the value of rug in a fine rug. However in Nomadic and some village rugs, the density is not considered as a factor.

Hand Knotting rug making process

WEAVING STYLES

Adding Creativity By Weaving.

Indian Knots
To make this knot, the yarn is wrapped around four warp strands at a time instead of around two strands. Because the wrapping is done across 4 strands, these rugs have a much lower KPSI or knots per square inch and they take a much shorter time to complete. On the flip side, this type of knot is inferior. The technique is detrimental to the fineness, strength and durability of the weave, resulting in a rug that does not have the structural integrity you want in a rug.
Tibetan Knot
Tibetan rugs are a favorite choice of interior designers and are very different from a traditional Persian hand-knotted rug. Often collectors or designers who love Tibetan rugs, adore them because they are hand-knotted from the wool of sheep that graze in the highlands of Tibet. Tibetan wool is rich in lanolin and once woven can be one of the softest textures ever your feet can encounter. Not really like the Wool Shag rugs but it does resemble the Wool and Silk rugs in their feeling.
Persian Knots
This is a kind of asymmetric knot or double knot. It is widely used in Iran, Central Asia, India, China, Pakistan and Afghanistan. To make this knot, the yard is draped around two warp strands but only one of these warps is completely encircled. The yarn is then passed open behind the adjoining warp in such a way that the two ends have only a single warp dividing them. The knot could be wrapped in either direction and are said to be open either to the right or open to the left. These asymmetrical knots are used in rugs that have very fine detailing.
Turkish Knots
This is a type of symmetrical knot or single knot. It is generally used by the Anatolian and Caucasian weaving groups in Turkey. It is also used by several other Turkish and Kurdish tribes in Iran. To make the Turkish knot, the yarn is wrapped across two adjoining warp strands and it is then pulled back through the inside of both warps and drawn through the center so that both ends emerge from between the same warps. This process produces a very secure pile construction

Types Of Knots

Indian Knot

The asymmetrical knot is used in Iran, India, Turkey, Egypt and China. To form this knot, yarn is wrapped around one warp strand and then passed under the neighboring warp strand and brought back to the surface. With this type of knot a finer weave can be created.

Turkish Knot

The symmetrical knot is used in Turkey, the Caucasus and Iran by Turkish and Kurdish tribes. It is also used in some European rugs. To form this knot, yarn is passed over two neighboring warp strands. Each end of the yarn is then wrapped behind one warp and brought back to the surface in the middle of the two warps.

Tibetan Knot

In Tibet, a distinctive rug-weaving technique is used. A temporary rod which establishes the length of pile is put in front of the warp.
A continuous yarn is looped around two warps and then once around the rod. When a row of loops is finished, then the loops are cut to construct the knots.

Identifying the Type of Knot Used

To identify the type of knot used in any oriental rug, turn the rug over and examine the construction at the back. On the back of any hand- knotted rug, you can see thousands of tiny bumps or loops that are squarish in shape. These loops are the visible part of the knots as they go around the warp threads.

If only two loops or bumps are visible across the warp at the place where the knot is tied, then the rug has been constructed using the Ghiordes knot. If there is only a single loop or bump visible, then you know it has been constructed using the Senneh knot.

If the knot count is half or less than half of the warp count, then the rug is most likely constructed using the Jufti knot.
