I'm currently weaving fabric with a 2/2 twill with wool warp, and I ran out of weft yarn when I had only a yard left. I didn't want to buy any more weftyarn (I've already spent a fortune on this fabric!) so I started playing with some singles from my stash, and I'm weaving a striped fabric with 5 colours (stripes are about 1 cm each). I love this striped fabric! It looks so nice, and I think it would make a great tunic or apron derss - but now I have a question:
Does anyone have any reference to striped fabric? I'm mostly into viking era, but later centuries are fine too. I have some historical textile reference books, but I just moved, so they are still in boxes.
If anyone can helpt me find any reference at all, or even just say, no there was no such thing, I'd really appreciate it!
