Sunday Textiles 4-1-18

The Fashion History Museum of Ontario Canada posted this picture of their oldest artifact to Twitter. At first glance this piece of linen may not look like much but, after nearly 4,000 years, that's rather to be expected. I am amazed at how fine the work is, given the weaving technology of the time. The individual threads are tiny and make me wonder if they are actually single strands of flax fiber.
