This weaving is really going to be difficult to cut up! These will not be the only pictures of this cloth---just the first.
I can't begin to describe what the cloth feels like! Well, yes I can. It feels just like a cashmere sweater--actually like lots of cashmere sweaters.
Each color change represents a different sweater.
Oh, by the way, pictures were taken outside the Asian Art Museum in Seattle, WA. It is closed on Mondays so I didn't have to fight with any kids for a seat on the camel. When I first moved to Seattle, the camels (there are two of them) were marble. They were moved indoors and replaced by these concrete ones.
