Twill Double Saddle Blanket Navajo Weaving : Historic : PC 85

OK, we'll admit it.  There is a special place in our hearts for the Master Weavers.  Those who seek to honor Spiderwoman's gift and weave the best piece that they can.

 Those who learn and master the very difficult style of Twill weaving are in a class by themselves. A Twill weave yields a different pattern on each side. Some weavers even weave a different design on each side.  This outstanding Twill weave is from our private collection. 

Weaving on an outdoor loom 1890

It is an incredible early example - woven in the 1880s - on an outdoor upright loom. This wonderful Double Saddle Blanket was brought to life using hand-carded, hand spun, hand aniline-dyed Merino wool.  

Tiny vertical lines over a band of natural colored wool alternate with solid red diamond twill bands different dividing designs.  This is an exquisite piece - in color, condition, and quality.
