- Small fragment of woven wool weft-pile fabric with red 2-ply warp. Red weft bands alternate with green bands of weft-twining and weft-pile (one one surface only). The red single wefts pass over three warps along one edge and six in the center and at the opposite edge. The green twining appears to pass over each warp.The wefts encircle both edges, although some of the green wefts are broken. There are remnants of linen stitches.
