A basic familiarity with Terminology of Navajo weaving also is essential to the savvy collector as it is the only reliable way to authenticate Navajo rugs. Navajo Rug designs differ on the Reservation according to the region and clan who weave them. Each rug is woven to include one small flaw in the final product in order that any evil spirits residing in the rug may have a way of escape. Every month or so I visit the trading posts on the Navajo Reservation and talk to the traders and weavers there and get great information and advice from them. The more you know about Navajo weaving, the more you will enjoy collecting them. Warp strings are the vertical strings which serve as the foundation of the rug. Wool yarn is prefered because cotton warp strings may not tolerate rough use as a floor covering. Weft threads are the horizontal threads that cover the warp threads, or the yarn that is woven over and under the warp and from side to side. Wefts per inch are counted on both faces of a fabric. When the wefts are counted on one side, this number is doubled, as there is a corresponding weft on the other side. It can vary at different parts of the rug. The better the weaver the more consistent this will be throughout the rug. Most Navajo rugs have approximately 30 wefts to the linear inch. A weft count of 50 or more per inch is a very high quality rug. A count of 80 or more qualifies a rug as a tapestry. Two or more yarns that twist about each other while interlacing with and reinforcing a fabric’s edge. In Navajo textiles, two 3-ply selvage cords are usually twined together, forming a 2-strand edge. In Pueblo fabrics, three 2-ply cords usually form a 3-strand, twined selvage. There are also other variations. A subtle diagonal break in the weave of many Navajo fabrics where a weaver has worked on adjacent sections of warps at different times; usually spaced apart no more than the length of the batten, lazy lines allow a weaver to weave a wide fabric without having to reach from side to side with each pass of the weft. Weaver’s Pathway (Sprit Line). A small thin line that extends from the center design field across the border to the outside edge of some rugs; the line is frequently placed near a corner and made of the same color as the center field’s background. Also called the spirit line. Associated with the belief of allowing the energy and spirit woven into a particular textile to be released in order for the weaver to have the energy and imagination to continue weaving other textiles.
