Thank you. I had a collection of about 16 vintage Navajo rugs that I have sold or have on consignment while selecting 4 vintage rugs, that are new to us, that compliment our neutral decor. It was enjoyable to get what we wanted and what looked right in our new home decor setting. I think we may have a couple more in our future but we are in no rush now that the primary areas have hanging textiles.You must have a lovely home. A phenomenal collection of rugs and blankets.
How are you hanging these up using the french cleat if you don't mind me asking. Are you sewing a muslin lining to the back of it or doing something totally different? Got some blankets myself from village folks of Samtay and liking how clean your hanging looks.And another up on the wall today: Navajo Natural Double Saddle Blanket c.1900-1920. Mounted using a french cleat.
Here is my post from the furniture/design thread about hanging our rugs with a french cleat:How are you hanging these up using the french cleat if you don't mind me asking.

most all modern or recent vintage pile rugs have a cotton foundationI bought another rug on Etsy. The listing said it was wool, hand-knotted. But when it arrived and I cut open one end, the bottom seemed to be almost entirely made of cotton. The top is made of wool, but it seems weird that the bottom would be almost completely cotton and the top wool.
Anyone have any idea based on this close up?

Wondering if I should return it, ask for a partial refund, or just accept it as is. We like the design, but the fact that it's majority cotton (maybe 75%) makes me wonder about it's performance vs an all or mostly wool rug.
I contacted the seller and they just said it has a cotton foundation and they may have accidentally copied the text in that listing from another one. The listing says no returns, but I'm guessing Etsy will allow it since it isn't quite as described. I'd appreciate any advice/thoughts.
