BIRRC-D0383.jpg

This piece is thought to have been woven on a single-heddle loom. It composed mainly of white-machine and hand-spun yarn, with weft stripes near each end in light-blue and red yarn. The ends have been fringed and knotted to finish it. It was presented to the Danford Collection by Sister Evelyn Bellamy in 1969.
