Two Grey Hills Rug by Dorothy Sam

Dorothy Sam

True Two Grey Hills rugs are wooven of natural, undyed,

handspun wool in designs of white, black, and brown. Weavers

produce subtle shades of these basic hues by carding together wool

from different sheep. The wool is often quite fine, requiring more

weaving time but resulting in an exquisite rug. Because of the

considerable time and effort required to prepare hand spun wool,

rugs made from it may cost twice as much as those of comparable

sizes made from commercial yarns.

The design does not represent hills. Two Grey Hills rugs are named

for a village in New Mexico. They tend to have a plain, dark border,

but the patterns are often more complicated than those of a

Ganado or a Klagetoh. Like other styles with borders, many Two

Grey Hills rugs have a spirit line.
