Weave Structure Sample Book

I’ve decided to put together a medieval weave structures sample book.  Basically, small samples of all the weave structures I can document to medieval Europe.

I’m going to do them all in a natural-colored 8/2 unmercerized cotton, with a small section of colored weft to show the weave better.  I’m hoping the constant yarn will allow the differences in weave structure to show without distractions from different fibers/textures.

I will compile these all into a sample book with a description of the draft, historical details, and weaving draft.

Step one is to go through all my books and try to find as many drafts/extant textiles as possible.
