Rabbit Skin Weaving - A method by which the far western Indian tribes made blankets and robes from rabbit skins.  The skins were cut into long strips, twisted with the fur side out, so that they were in rolls about the size of the finger.  These rolls formed the warp and were held in place by rows of woven stout cord or babiche.  They were extremely warm as blankets.
