This type of handwoven wool blanket is commonly used as a wall hanging, or draped over the back of a couch. This piece has dusty gold as a background color and natural black, rust, and natural indigo included in its design. It is based on a Navajo Chief blanket and uses mixed dyes, which means that at least some of these yarns are from natural dyes, and some of these yarns were hand dyed or commercially dyed. It was woven by Rudy Lee Valdez who is a weaver whose talent and expertise on a variety of loom widths, styles and techniques we very much prize. It measures approximately 48 by 72 inches.
