<p>Three Icelandic fleeces. Warp is spun from thel of white pile. Weft is spun (separately) from thel of black & gray tog; both are varieties of brown.</p>
I like this, it must have been a lot of work, spinning from þel (thel) and weaving the fleece within the weft.
This is something I would like to do one day.
The name is vararfeldur (singular) and vararfeldir (plural). The reason for the writing "vararfeldr" is because in the older days, when still writing on skin, they missed out some letter, to make more space, to write more.
Vararfeldur is usually vaðmál woven with röggv, which is the fleece, like rya, but different loop around the weft, and is therefore sometimes named röggvarfeldur (singular).
You probably know all this.
Did you use this resource: http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/FTP_Files/ThorasVararfeldrArticle.pdf
this is very powerful... you must have such patience to weave it! mazel tov! :)
No, no, I don't know all that - thanks! I am especially clueless when it comes to language. So this is a vararfeldur. I've seen the roggvarfeldur name (sorry, can't find diacritics on this keyboard) but thought that might be a heavier textile. I thought rya used spun yarn for the pile weft. So much more to learn.
The article you cite is the one that started me on this adventure! But does it have the correction there for the knot? I think it might not be linked there.
