I would appreciate getting feedback on my Tabriz 3’3”x5’0” rug, excl. fringe. I purchased it 14 years ago and it looked new. It is 50-Raj. KPSI is 521 based on average of 3 samples. The fibers are wool pile with silk highlights on cotton foundation. In order to complete the Pro Estimator, I would like to know:
Kurk Wool?
Handspun? (I doubt it.)
Here is the Pro Estimator link to view my input. Please advise if you think I need to adjust my answers.

Thank you for your consideration.

I'm re-posting one of the photos of the Tabriz rug that didn't seem to upload properly.

I may be mistaken although am counting something around 17x20 which would align with under 350 kpsi or so, so yes, 50 Raj but for estimator purpose the range is 320-410. While I am unsure, I do not believe these to be exclusively natural dye, so this would be adjusted as well.

Thank you for catching my error in answering the dye category. I wasn't paying attention to that aspect when I filled out the Rug Estimator as most of my carpets have natural dyes. Re KPSI, I'll go back and view the three samples and, if necessary, go back to the rug to verify the count and adjust accordingly. Since I slipped up on the dye, I may have mixed up the samples for this carpet. I'll report back on my findings. This is great! Much appreciated.

Back again... You are right on the KPSI count too. I viewed my photos on file plus went back to my notes for this rug. What I think must have happened is that, as I was working on several rugs on the same day, I transcribed the KPSI sample numbers from another carpet to this carpet. Thank you for picking up on this.
