Description: Woven Fabric. This ancient hand-woven fabric fragment was found stuffed between the log of the 1772 Doucet House. It’s made of wool and thread and measures approximately 12.7cm by 2.4cm. From this tiny piece of fabric we had a local weaver, Ann Marie Buote, recreate the colors and pattern into a reproduction fabric which we used in our period costumes.
