Diagonal Twill Variation


Herringbone twill and tapestry technique. The type of twill used in this piece is borrowed from the saddle blanket structures of older weavings. Herringbone twill was highly favored for saddle blankets because of the thickness of the end product. Twills are not created often anymore among Navajo weavers so I continue to weave them for the survival of our textile heritage. Natural dyes feature cochineal, indigo, and rabbit brush. The other colors come from natural shades of wool and synthetic dye. The yarns were handspun by me primarily from Navajo Churro Sheep.
