Heritage Blankets New Mexico produces lovely handwoven blankets of natural, undyed Navajo churro wool. The wool comes from sheep raised by area shepherds and spun in local mills. The non-profit enterprise supports Northern New Mexico’s traditions in arts and agriculture while providing greatly needed income to people in rural communities. Two cousins from old Chimayó weaving families, Julia Martinez and Isaiah Valdez, weave most of the blankets. The pattern motifs are inspired by designs long used in the region by people of several origins including Pueblo, Spanish, Navajo, and Mexican.
