Lödöse Diamond Check – (Lödöserutan®)
This is a thin worsted fabric made after a fabulous medieval find from Lödöse, dated to 1220-1240 (Inv nr AI 953). It has crossing stripes of broken twill, that form lozenge/diamond twill (gåsöga) where they meet.
The fabric is double-faced, so both sides can be used but they look slightly different with the colour pattern flopped on the back side.
Width 150 cm.
Weight 260 g/meter.
