3rd Phase Chief Blanket : Historic : GHT 2069
From our Historic collection we have a 3rd Phase Chief Blanket. This bold piece was woven with Merino wool. If you look closely, you can see the "lazy lines" or sectional lines. These would be placed in weavings for several reasons - one of which would enable the weaving to "hinge" and thus would wrap the wearer in a more supple blanket.
The weaver of this piece used natural wool for the browns as can be seen in the carded variegation. When worn, the side designs would meet together to form a completed shape. Spiderwoman crosses accent the piece.
