Saddle Blanket - Double - Twill : Historic : GHT 2152

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.

This piece features diamond and alternating diagonal patterns. It was featured in Steve's exhibit at the Tubac Center of the Arts.
