Optical Navajo Child's blanket : Kathy Marianito : Churro 1571

This one was started in August 2017 and arrived at Nizhoni Ranch June 2018.  That is nearly a year on the loom!  This special weaving went through a Navajo Blessing Ceremony. 

Newly arrived at the Gallery!!  Kathy has out done herself !!  86 years young, Master Weaver Kathy Marianito is continuously busy at her loom!  

In 2016 Steve sent many spools of super fine wool to Kathy, and this is one of her creations!  Kathy has woven a small Womans Manta Optical using vegetal and analine dyed wool. She wove this one with a needle...  


Kathy's Optical sampler is her own design and is spectacular in person!
