This piece is a most unusual wool horse blanket. The underside will have a layer sheep wool and a yak wool like blanket will be its bottom side. The design is called Nambu Tigma, featuring many dyed small circles with green and red crosses. This is all hand dyed. The green base color indicates that this is an older carpet, as this shade of green is a very difficult vegetable dye to produce and has given way to more common reds and purples.
