"Looks like wool to me with a cotton weft. There are various tests which can find online that involve melting/burning a small amount of fiber. But I don't think there is a need to test in this case.
Not an old rug, so no real antique value.…"
Need help with establishing the value of this rug from Iran. 97.5” wide by 132.5” long plus fringe. So roughly 8x12 foot rug. Excellent condition. Tag reads L.K.L. Hand made in Iran . A tan carpet washing. Factory Hosseinzadeh. No. 5702. Masse 329 x 245 with a box outlined handwritten number that looks like f06. The tag was loosely “stuck“ on the back corner of the rug. Does not feel like it is wool. Sad to say I cannot distinguish wool from silk from cotton.Thanks.See More

I occasionally buy from auctions and want to know more about what I acquired. We have several vacation rentals and I use options to furnish them. I grew up in a house built in 1918 With furniture pre-dating the house, so I have always loved and appreciated antique furniture, especially rugs.
