Navajo reverse weave herringbone twill saddle blanket, German town wool early 20th century-possibly earlier due to the use of cotton warp thread. This is an eye dazzler of the more subtle kind with the change of direction creating the herringbone pattern, again some selvedge edge wear from use, but holding together due to the density of the weave. From Rose Bowl this weekend. Related piece over at AAPC.
