L.A. vI. ii. 0046. Fr. of coarse woollen pile-carpet. Warp of thin brown string ; weft, four picks of loosely twisted yarn, well packed; pile, a soft woollen yarn, four-ply, c. 1" long, turned twice round each end' of warp forming a very firm knot. The length of pile is sometimes more than the in. There are about four rows to the inch (vertical), and about eight knots to the inch (transverse) : = thirty-two to one inch sq. On back, at intervals of five picks of weft, are rows of long woollen tufts. Each tuft consists of two soft woollen yarns very slightly twisted and c. 5" in length, slipped under every tenth ' end ' of warp, no knot being tied and the two ends of tuft floating free. The object of these may have been to prevent the carpet's slipping on a smooth floor.

The colours used are black, dull white, red, pink, buff, yellow, bright blue. A fine green occurs, but may be caused by damp and heat affecting the blue accidentally. The ground colour is red and pink, with indistinguishable pattern in lines, sometimes straight and sometimes meandering, of the other colours. The order of the colours in a band which seems to be part of the border is :—red and pink, white, buff, blue, black, red. The technique closely resembles that of the modern cheap Japanese rug. The tufts at back are now absent, and the pile knot is more simple and not so strong. The quality of wool (or fibre) is also inferior in the modern rug. Well preserved ; colours bright ; wool very brittle. 8 " x 9f'. Pl. XXXVII.
