No, your eyes are not deceiving you. This is an Antique Navajo Double Saddle Blanket from the 1940s. It's woven in an unusual double twill - 2 faced. Check out the photos to see the weaving in detail.   It's mesmerizing, isn't it?!

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 saddle blanket measures 32 x 50" and the owner could choose which design he wanted to show when riding on it - the large circles or the smaller square pattern.
