    what type of thread do you use? Is this done on a loom?
    Yes, I have a loom with warp on it, the rugs are around 30" wide, I can make them wider and I may on these. I don't weave for others anymore. I have several rugs on hand, I just can't stop saving jeans!
    My SIL is 6'8" and his jeans are perfect. I like tall men, what can I say! My hubby is 6'2", and a couple sons who are tall, so they keep me busy.
    Socks, my hubby uses a wool blend, I cut them up into loops, and loop them together. The two rugs in my kitchen are 10 yrs of socks.... I think they cost me a lot of money but we are getting our money's worth.

    I have a loom that is smaller, so I usually make 2-4 sections and put them together..I have been using wool to make mine..but denim by the back door would be awesome!

    One of my guild members makes jeans skirts out of jeans. PM me for more info.

    Another makes aprons, using coordinating fabric for ruffles and ties.
