I've got approximately 5 1/2 yard of grey linen tabby cloth woven, that I am calling "monk's cloth" I have plans to make an early sideless surcote with it....once I get up the nerve to cut it. I figure I have about 80 hours in just in producing the cloth. I really want to machine sew it to limit the fraying...or at least zig zag each side before cutting as a fray-check, but not sure if that would be OK for an A&S entry, which this is supposed to be.....someday.
Wow, that is lovely Erica! Those are water budgets (not sure what is the right spelling for those heraldically speaking), and Damask is not possible on a rigid heddle because you need multiple harnesses, right?
Cloth #2 in the Lindsey-Woolsey cloth test. This is the 100% linen warp with a 100% wool weft, which is what the 14th C. archelology seems to suggest per Elizabeth Crofoot et al. "Textiles and Clothing."
Can't wait to finish this second cloth and start getting "Medieval" on both.
