Chimayo Weaving, a wearing blanket made for the Tortugas Indians, in Southern New Mexico. Tortugas means turtle, and the chief or some notable wore this at the Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe held each year. This blanket is woven from the churro sheep that have long soft wool, and is on a cotton weft. It makes for a very soft blanket. Near mint condition. This technique was used in the 1800's also, and was abandoned for a for different wool, and then in the 1960's, the Chimayo weavers brought the Churro sheep back.  Thanks for shopping in the Land of the Tortugas Indians! REDUCED!
