SOLD Optical Navajo Child's blanket : Kathy Marianito : Churro 1571

This one was started in August 2017 and arrived at Nizhoni Ranch June 2018.  That is nearly a year on the loom!  This special weaving went through a Navajo Blessing Ceremony. 

In 2016 Steve sent many spools of super fine wool to Kathy, and this is one of her creations!  Kathy has woven a small Woman's Manta Optical using vegetal and aniline dyed wool. She wove this one with a needle...  


Kathy's Optical sampler is her own design and is spectacular in person!
