Why Should You Knit Your Own Rug?

You can also choose from a wide variety of colors and patterns to create a one-of-a-kind rug that is sure to impress your friends and family. Best of all, knitting your own rug is a relatively easy process that doesn’t require much time or effort.

There are many benefits to knitting your own rug, including:

  • Knitting your own rug is a relatively easy process that doesn’t require much time or effort.
  • You can customize the size of your rug to fit any space in your home.
  • Rugs that are handmade with love tend to be more durable and longer lasting than mass-produced rugs.

How to Care for Your Knitting Rug

Most rugs, whether they are hand-knitted or store-bought, can be machine-washed on a delicate cycle. If your rug is made with natural fibers such as wool, it is best to hand-wash it in cool water with a mild detergent. Knitted rugs made with synthetic fibers such as acrylic can usually be washed on the delicate cycle and then tumble-dried on low heat. Once your rug is clean, lay it out flat to dry.

To keep your rug looking its best, spot-clean any stains as soon as they happen. When you’re not using it, store your knitted rug in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. With proper care, your rug will stay looking great for years to come!
