- A dull red blanket made by the Navajo Indians by using wool from a Spanish
trade cloth. The word means "baize" in Spanish and is applied to
the cloth itself, which was introduced in the nineteenth century as a trade
item. The navajo unraveled the cloth and used the wool to make their
blankets, which were the most highly prized of all navajo blankets.
