A Nomad’s Blanket. Woven in dreams. Dyed from the earth.
A long cold winter is riding tails of the next cloud, it peeks over the
horizon. A Tibetan Nomad’s blanket, raw, tightly woven, moth eaten,
pulling apart at the seams and full of grass bits is the inspiration from
which my seed grew. Woven of pure Merino wool fibers that were all dyed
with natural materials, and in panels to mirror those made with backstrap
looms. (a chart of all the dye samples is in the gift shop). The natural
dyes used are: Sandalwood, Black Walnuts, Indigo, Daffodils, Mulberry
fruit, Yellow Onion skins, Sage brush, Silver Sage, Sequoia tree moss,
local tree moss, black beans, Pecan shucks, Blanket flower, Hopi Black
Sunflower seeds, red chili, Madder, Coffee, Fustic and Cochineal.
