Navajo weaving way: the path from fleece to rug
Interweave Press, Jul 1, 1997 - Social Science - 160 pages
Noel Bennett met traditional Navajo weaver Tiana Bighorse in 1968. In time Tiana took her into her family as a daughter. Together they sheared sheep, collected plants, dyed wool, carded, spun, and wove. This book records their many experiences together, a collaboration that spans nearly thirty years. In 1971, Tiana and Noel wrote Working with the Wool: How to Weave a Navajo Rug. Noel later wrote Designing with the Wool and The Weaver's Pathway. Now, this single, authoritative volume brings together those three booksówith updates and revisionsóas well as excerpts from other published articles and books by Noel and Tiana about Navajo weaving, culture, and history. Detailed charts and illustrations help the weaver find her way step-by-step through the making of a first sampler and through several more advanced techniques.

Navajo Weaving Way, The Path from Fleece to RugUser Review - Overstock.com
Anyone who collects Navajo Rugs and is interested in Navajo weaving techniques will love this book. The majority of books on Navajo rugs concentrate on the history and the styles of rugs. This book instead focuses on the actual weaving methods and techniques, with excellent photographs and drawings. A must for everyone seeking knowledge on the subject. I wish that the book was available in a hardbound edition, as it is a classic and deserves a more durable packaging!

I loved this book, but then, I am in love with anything about sheep, wool, and spinning. :)
