I'm nearly 100% sure the "Cupcakes Make People Happy" print by Yee Haw was largely inspired by another Knoxville business, Magpies Cakes.

All butter, all the time does indeed make people very, very happy around here.

I want it *all*, especially the office area and living room. I love it when traditional arts and crafts era bungalows are brought up to date the right way and this is a great example of just that. Kudos!

Their studio and work reminds me of Yee Haw Industries in Knoxville. What a nice space!

Are you absolutely sure that rug is 100% wool?

I know from a knitting / handspinning standpoint that 100% wool shouldn't do what your rug did when exposed to heat. Scorch and leave brittle ash, yes. Melt/clump or be stiff, no. Can I suggest you try doing a burn test to confirm the fiber type?

I could be wrong, but I would guess that your rug has some olefin or nylon blended in. If that's the case there's not much that can be done except clip out the sections and possibly work in a patch.

Unless the rug is valuable or has significant sentimental value you'd probably do better putting it somewhere or under something where the spots won't be seen.

Lehman's has a few Amish drying racks very similar (if not identical) to this particular one. Plus they also carry old-fashioned laundry supplies and sturdy floor drying racks.
