Two Grey Hills Navajo Weaving : Emma Benally : B-7

 Emma Benally comes from a long line of gifted weavers.  Her specialty is the Two Grey Hills style which uses all hand-carded, and hand-spun natural wool  Dyes are not used. By carding different colors together she is able to create lovely tones of brown and gray.  

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 the video below 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.
