Silent Spirit

Designed and hooked by Jill Izzard
This large Wall Rug was hooked using 100% Dupion Silk and then sheared to create a textured surface.

It is very heavy measuring approx 150 x 80 cms.

I have named this rug 'Silent Spirit'.

The rug hanging will be exhibited within Textile Expressions Gallery at the Knitting and Stitching Show to be held at Alexandra Palace in London from 6 - 9 October 2011 and then exhibited at The Harrogate International Centre during late November 2011.



  1. Jill, Silent Spirit is wonderful, your design strongly evoking the grace of a swan moving through water.

    I especially like the way the wings and head are worked - just absolutely beautiful.


  2. What a gorgeous piece. I would love to see the way light plays on it. Silk is so special.
