This long piece has been woven on a single-heddle woman's loom. The warp is striped in brown, yellow, green and pale blue machine-woven yarn with the weft demonstrating similar colours. The ends have been fringed to finish it off. It was presented to the Danford Collection by Sister Evelyn Bellamy in 1968.
