My first navajo rug

Here is my first handwoven Navajo style rug. All of the yarn was handspun from natural colored sheep. It is perhaps too soft for a rug, because I used garment grade wool. I need to work on my selvages-- the right side is always a little crooked, though the left is straight, when I make rugs. Don't ask me why. I made this rug on my two harness rug loom. I am going to try again using dyed wool, but first, I have to rewarp the loom.
