- 1900 – 1920s Ute Wool Skirt
- The piece has torn red trade wool for a skirt band.
- This is both machine and hand sewn and the same binding the hem of the skirt.
- The blanket is a brown, white, and grey checkered wool.
- It has threads of blue and red running through it adding subtle color.
- The closure is a hook and eye.
- It appears that the skirt was hung in a display as one side only has five small moth holes.
- The wool has since been conditioned against insects.
- It would be a great skirt to exhibit a beaded yoke top with.
- The waist band is currently 28″ but can be opened out to 34″.
- The skirt is a traditional winter skirt and is 34 1/2″ long.
- The width at the bottom of the hem is 69″ full circle.
