I believe this is getting off-topic.  Please wrap it up, take it to e-mail, or
take it to the historical costume list (where it has been discussed ad nauseum
in the past).

Also, discussions of weaving are specifically excluded from this list (see the
welcome file).  There are weaving-specific lists available.  Perhaps someone
could post the addresses for those who are interested.
