Something Different

When we were travelling in Siberia a couple of years back, I came across this creation in a museum in the small village of Zhigansk:

I could see that it was something made of yarn, but I didn’t recognize the technique, nor did I have much time to study it at the time, so I attempted a close up photo to try and figure it out later. I couldn’t touch it, of course.

Quite recently I came across a video on Youtube which explained how to make a Pompom blanket, and after seeing the result, I immediately recognized that this was the same technique as the small mat I had seen in Siberia.

So this is a pompom blanket. Maybe there are other names for this technique also, but at least I got my curiosity stilled, and also learned something new.

What did we do before internet?
