Default Weight for it, an exposition on weaving technology

This article from Science News offers some enlightening research on the history of weaving from the perspective of a Textile Archeologist. One insight is that "Only after 4000 B.C., when crafters started using wool with its shorter fibers, did spinning become necessary, Gleba says." https://www.sciencenews.org/article/...-tapestry-past
