Notes

185 warp threads

Wound separate waste warp of various cotton yarns to ensure I could weave as much of  the silk warp as possible. This technique worked really well, I had very little waste of the silk yarn!

Draft comes from Nancy Arthur Hoskin's Tabby to Taquete pg. 281 this design comes from another Roman Burial Pillow excavated from Antinoe Egypt. #26.812/21 Musee Historique des Tisus, Lyon, France.
