GoldCircle - Handmade Wool Weaving

Gold Circle by Irvin Trujillo is very much true to the historic Saltillo serapes. The scalloped circle is reminiscent of some of the classic 17th century Mexican Saltillos. This piece uses richly-colored, hand-dyed merino wool and silk blend yarns acid dyed by Irvin and a gold metallic yarn to give it a bit of a discreet sparkle. 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. It measures approximately 48 by 88 inches.
