Viking calf wrap, diamond twill tape, div. colors
This 7 m long piece of cotton ribbon in diamond twill weave has been woven on an extra narrow loom and therefore has especially beautiful selvages. It is 10 cm wide and can be used as a calf wrap, belt or decorative border. The 7 m tape length is exactly enough for a pair of calf wraps.
Characteristic of diamond twill (also called diamond twill) is the small pattern of staggered diamonds. This weave is especially apparent when working with two different colors in warp and weft. The weave makes the fabric cross-stretchy, so calf wraps made of diamond twill are especially nice to put on.
Ribbons with woven-in patterns were very popular. The borders, usually made in board weave, decorated the outer garments at hems and necklines. Calf wraps (leg wraps, puttees) were also made on narrow looms. They were an integral part of Germanic clothing and were wrapped over the pants from the foot to below the knee and served as a substitute for socks. They not only warmed, but also protected the legs from injury.
