4.0 out of 5 stars a good book of how-to and folk-lore, 10 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Navajo Weaving Way: The Path from Fleece to Rug (Paperback)
I recently bought this book in hopes of understanding how a Navajo rug/blanket was woven. I was not diasppointed at all; I believe I could do it with just this book--and that includes building my own loom! The authors include Navajo dyeing plants and proceedures, wool carding and spinning, and, of course, the weaving process. There are also a couple of patterns that beginners might try. In addition to the process, the author inserts quotes from Navajo women about the traditions and folk-traditions of the craft--such as the dangers in not completing the weaving in a timely manner, how spirits of the dead may work the loom when the weaver is away, etc. I like the book, but I cannot say that it has answered all of my questions.
