Each rug is handmade for their customers in an ages old technique that has been passed on to the creative artisans of today. Homefires employs the use of various fibers and techniques to create just the right look for their many beautiful designs. Although most of their rugs are made from wool yarn, customers will also find some rugs made in cotton yarn and others in acrylic yarn. The choice of fiber is dictated by Homefires' desire to achieve a particular color tone, clarity, or intensity. Cotton allows Homefires to achieve a very clean soft tone. Wool provides a rich warm tone, and acrylic fibers can be dyed to create the most vivid of colors. The different techniques used include hooked, tufted, and a combination of hooking and tufting called Hi/Lo. Hi/Lo rugs are those that are a combination of tufting and hooking where the tufted part of the fibers are left measurably longer than the hooked part. The Cut/Loop technique is also a combination of hooking and tufting, but in this technique the tufted part of the rug is cut much closer to the height of the hooked area. In all cases, the design of the rug influences the technique that Homefires chooses.
Lighter Yellow but Lovely

I had ordered the 2'x3' size and the color is light yellow with a defined border of light green which is more contrast than the photo on the website. I took a picture of mine and the color came out more vibrant than I am seeing in real life so I think it is a matter of showcasing its beauty with proper lighting. The piles are looped with a comfortable slightly spongy feel.

Great quality and beautiful. Colors are slightly different than what was pictured, however.
