Additional Information 

A finely woven late Classic Period Navajo Serape. The red yarns are handspun with aniline dye, the blue yarns are handspun with indigo dye, the green is a vegetal-dyed plied yarn, and the yellow is handspun with rabbitbrush dye.

This is a blanket and is soft in texture; it displays beautifully as a wall hanging. It is also well suited for use as a bed or furniture covering/throw. Not recommended for use as a floor rug.
