Chimayoweavers/Centinela Traditional Arts Since 1982

Very Vallero - 48x82 Chimayo blanket, handwoven wool

This type of handwoven wool blanket is commonly used as a wall hanging, or draped over the back of a couch.  This piece has hand dyed red as a background color and hand dyed yellow, gold, red, purple, orange and natural blue and greens included in its design.  It uses hand dyed yarns, which means that these yarns were dyed by us using synthetic dyes, usually a washfast acid dye.  It was woven by Lisa Trujillo who is a spinner and weaver with almost forty years of weaving in the Chimayo and Rio Grande tradition. It measures approximately 48x82 inches.
