Tw
o Grey Hills weavings have been called “The Cadillac of
Nava
jo Weavings”
Weavers pr
oduce different shades by blending the wool from
different color
ed sheep in order to get the subtle color variatio
Generally the weavi
ngs are smaller, because of the fineness of
work, and tend to be ve
ry expensive because of that.
In 1957, Willard Leighton wh
o owned the Two Grey Hills trad
post at the time, contracted Rac
hel Curley to create what he
presumed would be the largest Two
Grey Hills rug ever woven
Unfortunately, Willard was murdered
in 1959 and never lived
see the rug completed.
