Notes: 

This cloth is another family project. this length of cloth was woven and sewn up into a tunic for my son. I used a diamond twill, which was common in the Viking era. Eldgrimr chose the warp color, as this warp was also used to weave cloth for him. I sampled all the weft colors I had in the same wool and let Thor choose what he liked best. He chose this combination.

Notes: 

I am making this to line the Drachenwald Royal Artisan Collar, so it can be pinned to costumes and so as not to chafe if worn next to the skin.This is based on a piece of damask I studied at the Clothworker's Centre London. I have simpliefied the design of this piece.The original is actually woven in samite (compound weft faced twill), but the design motif is quite similar to those used in damask.

Which fleece

As anyone who follows me on social media knows I am now not only a crazy weaver lady, but a crazy spinner lady! All this coupled with medieval re-enactment, a love of history and research means I've begun compiling a broader list of sheep breeds that were available in the Middle Ages. 10 years ago, when I first spun and dyed the yarn for a weaving project (which went so well it resulted in a 10 year hietous from spinning), all the re-enactors I knew were spinning Icelandic wool as the "most" medieval.
