Single Saddle Blanket Pictorial : Historic Navajo Weaving : GHT 653

Woven to be used as a single saddle blanket, the weaver hand-carded, hand-spun and hand dyed mohair wool.  Rainbow bars are orange, red and lime green with a hint of natural grey wool.  Orange animal figures might  be horses or maybe bears.  

This small Navajo weaving definitely tells a story as the mohair wool was unevenly spun and is highly variegated in areas.   Maybe woven by an elderly weaver or very young weaver, or woven in very harsh conditions, we'll never know.
