Abrash --> The fibers in hand-spun wool naturally have varying texture and thickness. The result of is is that different fibers absorb the dye differently so the colors differ slightly throughout one batch of thread. This is called abrash. It is beautiful, highly sought after, and found only in hand-spun wool that is dyed with all-natural dyes. Its one of the things I love most about antique rugs
