Teec Nos Pos rugs in the classic style of Navajo rugs usually have a decorated border. The center pattern is any geometric design other than a diamond as in a Two Grey Hills or Ganado Red rug. The yarns used can be hand spun or commercially produced or a combination of both. Hand spun yarns are normally a single ply. Commercial yarns used are 1,2,3,or made with 4 plys. It is the played yarns that give this rug type it's long wearing strength. Usually Teec Nos Pos rugs have a lot of color. Although color can be had using natural wool or vegetal dyes, most weavers use aniline dyes which will hold its color longer over time and use.
