This tablerunner is made out of some fabric that I tend to call burlap.
It's not a true burlap in that it is not scratchy and smelly!
I found a bolt of this stuff at a junque shop and I assume it was probably originally for use in maybe furniture making? Like under upholstery/over stuffing - or maybe on the underside of the furniture piece.
Not sure exactly, but who knows - that's the nature of using found and secondhand materials!
Sigh... today was one of those days at work that makes me wish I could weave all day everyday and be able to support myself. Today ranked up at the top of the "worst day at work, EVER" days.
And I used to work at a goose processing plant.
Yup, worse than that.
