1244-049 Navajo rug; Two Gray Hills
Excellent Condition - Very Fine Weave
A particularly handsome piece with cloud motif.
Two Grey Hills is located on the east side of the Chuska Mountains in the New Mexico portion of the Navajo reservation. The weavers in the Two Grey Hills area prefer to use natural un-dyed homespun native wool instead of commercial yarns. The colors in a classic Two Grey Hills design will consist of black, gray, beige, brown and cream. Each weaver will develop her unique yarn colors by blending natural wool colors together by a process called “carding”. To achieve a solid black color the weavers will over-dye the dark brown wool with a black dye.
