Navajo Germantown Weavings
 

From about 1875 until shortly after 1900, finely spun colorful trade yarn multi-plied was imported from the Germantown Pennsylvania textile mills to the Navajo reservation in New Mexico and Arizona to provide the Navajo with sufficient yarn to weave their blankets. In 1863 Kit Carson and the US Army had decimated the Navajo sheep population as part of the army's "scorched earth" campaign against the Navajo.  A decade and more later many Navajo weavers still had few sheep available from which to spin their traditional single-ply handspun wool yarn.

Brightly colored Germantown weavings are too finely woven to use as floor rugs however they are outstanding and eye-catching as wall-hangings and examples are available in a variety of sizes :sampler, single saddle blanket ,childs blanket, full blanket or serape size, large "rug" size .  For the last decade or two, Germantowns have ranked among the more popular and collectible of antique Navajo textiles.

 

See more Germantowns on these pages:
