Woolwork Viking Cuffs

Did these today. Had them for a couple of weeks but as usual left it to the last minute. They will be presented tomorrow at 12th Night Coronation in Rowany.

These cuffs are based on the Mammen finds. They were made as a stepping down gift for Her Majesty Queen Asa Beiskalda, Queen of Lochac. The ground fabric is wool, the embroidery is done using Paterna wool. The outline was worked by Lady Constance de Coligny and the filling by me, Lady Jane Stockton. The work was done on behalf of the Worshipful Company of Broiderers of Lochac and presented at 12th Night Coronation, 2007.
