Recycled Sweater Rugs

We've heard references to rugs that feel like sweaters under your toes...a great marketing tool or an enthusiastic owner singing the praises of a favorite new rug. But we just learned that there are actually rugs made from old sweaters; and they are called none other than sweater rugs. A Massachusetts-based textile designer has been creating these for 15 years from reclaimed sweaters. A few things we don't know from the Viva Terra site: who this designer is and what types of sweaters are most commonly used. Anyone know more than we do about these?? Available in ivory or blue for $124 (2.5'L x 3.5'W) and available online from Viva Terra.
