As you may remember, I have been collecting data about old (Swedish) wooden reeds. This has finally resulted in a couple of articles, that now have meanderad onto my website.
Here is the English version, here is the Swedish (which is slightly longer than the one that appeared in Solvögat).
Is there a reader (from anywhere) who has any information about other old systems of measuring reeds/yarn/weaving widths? The more I read, the more fascinated I get... :-)
