Historic Twill Single Saddle Blanket

The Willow Springs Ranch Collection


Beginning in the 1880s, weavers mostly used Twill to style their weaving of saddle blankets. This blanket like many more was used to give a little more style and fashionable look to put on top of the under saddle blanket.

The artist of this piece chose to do a two sided pattern with a positive and a negative side.  The gold coloring is from rabbit brush.
