Hi Joy,

Stiffness has more to do with the finesse of the weaving than the kind of wool.
My Tchitchaktu (IF it’s a Tchitchaktu) is supple and velvety, with nice wool. Yours should be the same, I guess.

I don’t know how 'dead wool' feels either but I would rather put my money on my rug in post # 81 for that. Which, besides its wool dryness is a very honest and sturdy rug, by the way. So, again, I don't know...
