Hacienda Blanket by Pendleton
Timeless geometric shapes give universal appeal to this nine-element design blanket. The stripes, crosses, triangles and diamond motifs are common in early Navajo Chief blankets. Cross figures represent the four directions and completeness. Arrows signify movement, power and the life force. In keeping with tradition, the pattern continues to the edges of the blanket in the belief that this would prevent evil spirits from being trapped within. The unnapped finish gives a crispness to the geometric shapes and right angles. Unnapped, felt bound. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean.
