CHIMAYÓ, NM (AP) – An initiative by New Mexico State University aims to secure the future of a pair of centuries-old practices in the state: raising sheep and weaving their wool into patterns, to the both spectacular and utilitarian.
The Wool Heritage Project’s inaugural effort is to produce a 13-pound wool rug, designed by New Mexico state fashion student Savannah Willingham and created by one of the generational weavers of the northern New Mexico: Richard Trujillo, from Trujillo’s Weaving Shop in Chimayó.
