Description
"Learn about fibers, weave structures, and dyes used in Early period cultures in Europe and how to best find or replicate period fabrics for use in SCA costuming. We will discuss what to look for, where to find it, and how to alter modern commercial fabrics to more closely match period textile finds. We will also discuss how to clean and care for wools, linens, and silks so that your garb lasts for years. The fee covers the cost of the packet. I also make the packet available online for free. "
