Add richness, texture & warmth with crewel stitch
Crewel stitching is a type of surface embroidery using wool. The technique is at least 1000 years old. Many different embroidery stitches are used in crewelwork to create a textured and colourful effect. Unlike silk or cotton embroidery threads, crewel wool is thicker and creates a raised, dimensional feel to the work, adding warmth and interest to your room. You can watch a crewel stitch rug being made here.
Crewel stitch rugs are much more lightweight than standard rugs and can therefore also be used as wallhangings and bedspreads. Prices start at £195.Shop Crewel Stitch Sarah Akwisombe styles this rug!
