The black warp works well with all weft colours, also light ones.

When making a rug in plain weave pattern, you have an endless number of options: for example, you can make it in one solid colour or go for the traditional way and weave with three shuttles and a different colour on each shuttle. Or maybe you prefer stripes? You can make them as wide or thin as you like. Weaving in rosepath, you can get different kinds of patterns. You can also combine the plain weave and rosepath weave patterns in the same rug.

If needed, the warp can be made narrower.
