|Tarkhan Dress, c 2800 BC|
Flax has been a favorite fiber for centuries, and it was so highly prized by the Ancient Egyptians that linen was used as currency. Expect your Euroflax Sport linen projects to be around and looking good for a long, long time. Your linen hand towel may not last as long as the Tarkhan Dress (left) – but it might! Worn around 2800 BC, the Tarkhan Dress was excavated from a 1st Dynasty Egyptian tomb in 1913 but was categorized as a pile of linen until it was “rediscovered” in 1977 when the pile was cleaned. This is not as surprising as it may seem, as the early archaeologists were men who were generally not interested in textiles, and it wasn’t until women started entering the field of archaeology that ancient textiles started to become appreciated. The Tarkhan Dress is part of the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology at the University College London.
Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
