Welcome to Nizhoni Ranch Gallery!
This weaving has natural hand spun wool with synthetic dyed red, orange and black, vegetal dyed yellow and green, and indigo dyed blue.
Produced only from 1875-1890 wedge weave blankets like this finely woven blanket were generally woven for Navajo use.
This weaving was part of an Exhibition showing at the Tucson Desert Art Museum January 4 2017...
The depth and dimension of the natural hand-spun Merino wool are so rich in this piece. We found this piece in Steve's private collection and are now offering it for purchase. It's easy to see why Steve stored this one away!
