Grace - 54x84 Chimayo blanket, handwoven wool
is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.
Grace is one the very finely detailed pieces by Irvin. This piece is a Trampas Vallero style because it has the four eight pointed stars in the corners and one star in the center. He has added a lot of interesting details that make it a pleasure to look at, there are just so many lovely variations of color and pattern. Most of it is geometric pattern, but there are flowers, and there is a hamsa in it, and even flames. It is made of acid dyed merino-silk and gold metallic thread. This is much finer than most of what we do, with a weft count of 64 (as opposed to the normal 26), but it uses the usual 8 ends or inch of Chimayo blankets. The size is similar to blankets in the 1800s.
