To make this dye the woman first burns some twigs of the juniper tree, called gad. The roots of tseesdazi, a kind of mountain mahogany, are crushed and boiled. To this is added the juniper ashes and the powdered bark of the black alder, known as kish, together with a plant called nibadlad, a moss which acts as a mordant. After the mixture has boiled until it is thought to be right it is strained and the wool or yarn is soaked in it over night.-- The result is a fine red color.  \u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAnd as you can see from the photos, this Chief blanket has very fine red color!\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e Finely woven blanket handle.   \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eCall for pricing!  520-455-5020\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ctable style=\"width: 355px;\"\u003e\n\u003ctbody\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 92px; text-align: left;\"\u003eStyle\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 251px; text-align: left;\"\u003eChief Blankets\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 92px;\"\u003eWeaver\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 251px;\"\u003eUnknown\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 92px;\"\u003eCirca\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 251px;\"\u003e1880\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 92px;\"\u003eSize\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 251px;\"\u003e56\" x 67\" \u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 92px;\"\u003eItem #\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd style=\"width: 251px;\"\u003ePC 283\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr\u003e\n\u003ctd colspan=\"2\" style=\"width: 343px; text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/navajorug-com.myshopify.com\/pages\/chiefs-blankets\"\u003eLearn more about Chief Blankets\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003c\/tbody\u003e\n\u003c\/table\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eContact us for more information, pricing or to order – \u003c\/span\u003e\u003ca href=\"mailto:steve@navajorug.com\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\"\u003esteve@navajorug.com\u003c\/a\u003e\u003cspan\u003e or 520-455-5020 -- We will be glad to help you!\u003c\/span\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA unique blend of history, Native American culture and storytelling make these weavings an art like no other. \u003c\/p\u003e"}
