This piece of hand dyed wool is "antique black" It is the major component in all of the antique black backgrounds in my rugs . It is also the perfect background piece for your wool appliqué project! It is dyed with black and chocolate brown and has a slightly mottled look for a more antique appearance. I only use 100% wool, and only work in a smoke free studio. This listing is for a 1/4 yard piece. App. 17" x 28".
