Saddle Blanket - Double - Twill : Lucy Nez : 3257

Twill patterns are often used for saddle blankets because there is more wool per area than on traditional patterns. It's a difficult style to learn and takes many years to master.

This stunning blanket would have been folded in half to provide additional comfort for the horse. The twill style naturally creates "lazy" or sectional lines which would further allow the blanket to conform to the shape of the horse's back.

Twill pieces are very difficult to weave. This is a Diamond Twill, Double Saddle Blanket woven by Lucy Nez. The difficulty in weaving a piece like this is almost hard to understand. Take a look at the detail photos to get an idea of the challenge Lucy had when weaving this piece. She's amazing!
