Heritage Blankets of New Mexico

Heritage Blankets are handloomed in a diversity of natural undyed shades of Navajo-Churro wool  raised and spun in Northern New Mexico. The rugged Navajo-Churro breed has been used by self-sufficient  Native American and Spanish New Mexican agricultural communities since the 17th century, and is currently listed as an endangered breed. The production of this beautiful product promotes the continued raising of Navajo-Churro sheep, provides employment for weavers, and supports a sustainable rural economy. These medium-weight blankets measure approximately 4'x6'.
