  • Notes: Interpretation of the fabric dug out in1956 from an earth bank on the farm of a Mr William Dixon in the townland of Flanders, near Dungiven, County Londonderry. The peaty soil had preserved the material which was analysed as being ca end of 16th C. Parts of the fabric weren't quite so faded which allowed another reconstruction of the original colours - see Ulster, Red. Count said (STS notes) to be from A & W Law Ltd., Darn and Lydgate Mills, Littleborough. Original count extrapolated by Audrey Henshall from National Museum of Antiquities in Edinburgh. Lochcarron sample.
