A boundweave piece was used in a traditional Norwegian home as a coverlet on a wooden corner bed or as a covering in a sleigh.  Sometimes it was a decorative wall hanging.  Melba Granlund wove a laptop bag.  While that is a nontraditional use, it is a practical, protective use of thick wool yarn.

The weavings in the Timeless Traditions show vary greatly in size, something that isn’t clear from the details shown in this blog.  A detail, such as the one in this post, doesn’t reflect the scale or effect of the entire piece at all.   Pieces vary from long and narrow (less than nine inches), to a six foot long rag rug.
