Marie Begay has her own sheep on her farm in Burnham, NM. Her family shears them and she cleans, cards and spins the wool to weave her textiles. The black is over dyed and the white is enhanced to create a contrast that makes the design really dynamic. Marie uses the Two Grey Hills style as her central design and she adds borders that have a Burnham influence like corn, feathers or squash blossoms. All hand spun natural wool with an Aniline black. Marie Begay is the eldest living Burnham sister from the original five sisters. Marie uses all hand spun wool and her designs are more classic to the Two Grey Hills style.
