So how are they made?1) A small wad of yarn is rolled into a golf ball size
2) The ball is then soaked in soapy lukewarm water and then rolled using the palm of your hands to make the balls firm .
3) Once the balls are around 1" in size they are naturally sun dried.
5) The felt balls are now hand sown to your specifications using a strong nylon thread. The sowing of the rug is the complex task, taking a long time to complete
6) The rug is now inspected, folded and packed in a protective plastic material ready for transport.
