|| *Message was: Recently, I purchased from a well known shop in Germany|
a new Beloutch rug from Afghanistan. It measures 1.50 * 1.00 meters and has approx. 320.000 knots per square meter.
(This should be approx. 200 knots per square inch).
The wool of the blue coloured parts looks very odd on closer
inspection. I removed a knot. The wool threads are mixed blue and
black. First question: Is it normal that the wool is hardly spun and twisted?
I found several threads in the knot that do not look like wool at all.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
