Rothko Rya Rugs

Mini Rothko Rya Kits

Please Note:
A Mini Version of the Rothko Rya Kits is coming soon (approx 45 cm width x 70 cm length). I am waiting for a shipment of yarns to arrive.

Rothko has been the inspiration for this series of Rya Rug Kits. In his art, Rothko used a unique blend of many layers and shades of colour to produce his artwork. Each rya knot consists of an original multi-colour blend of different shades, types and thicknesses of wool yarn giving the finished rya rug a depth of colour and texture.

The yarns for each Rothko Rya kit is individually hand dyed at the time of your order. The colours will vary slightly due to the nature of hand dyeing, so may not look exactly as in the pictures shown. I am now using natural plant dyes for all of my hand dyed colours.

Each rya rug kit comes with hand woven rya backing, rya needles, a ruler, a pattern chart, hand-dyed pure wool yarns, and a suggested blend of colours, but you are free to create your own individual blend within each rya knot. The completed piece will be an original, designed by you.

A comment from a happy customer:

“It is the beautiful colours of your wools that make this Rya such a delight to work on, ( have already done 6 inches). And I love the complicated bits and then the solid colours. (Heaven knows how you managed to dye them all)”JB

Each Rya Kit is hand dyed at the time of the order. As this will be a custom order

This is to cover material costs if you should change your mind.

It takes approx 3 to 12 weeks for completion of your order depending on current production schedules.

These “Rya Rugs” are designed to be hung on a wall as a piece of art. Using a Rya as floor or area rug is not recommended.

Sadly, over the years I have received many emails from rya rug owners, asking how to repair the hole in their rug that was created by a table or chair leg. A repair is possible sometimes, but this should not have happened. Ryas are traditionally used as a bed covering or a wall hanging. These should be treated as a treasured piece of art, hung on the wall, not on the floor and can last for a lifetime when cared for properly.
