Sorry for the silence, but the last few months have been crazy. In addition to planning a wedding, at Crown Tournament I was invited to join the Order of the Laurel (the SCA’s highest award for arts). Well, of course that means I need new clothes . . .
I am planning a Birka-inspired outfit to use the wonderful brocaded tablet weaving that my honey got me at last Estrella war. The outfit will consist of a linen serk, diamond twill wool smokkr, and a silk trimmed wool caftan.
I decided to order the fabric for my vigil dress and elevation caftan from Naturtuche (www.naturtuche.de) and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for beautiful, light weight wools in color and weaves appropriate to the Viking Age. Their customer service is wonderful and their products are to die for!
