SOLD - Saddle Blanket - Double - Two Grey Hills: Historic : GHT 2289

This is actually a double saddle blanket.  The rider would fold it in half under the saddle to provide extra padding and comfort to the horse. 

Woven in the 1930s using hand-carded, hand-spun native wool.  All natural wool colors. 

To appreciate all of the time and work that goes into a piece of woven art that has been hand-carded and hand spun, please watch this youtube video which shows Master Weaver Clara Sherman carding and spinning wool. It was filmed in 2009 and is such a blessing to demonstrate the ways of the Navajo weaver. When done by hand, the preparation of the wool can take months before it ever touches the loom.
