ram's horn by emortalcoil ram's horn by emortalcoil
Successfully weaving the ram's horn pattern may not be a rite of passage but it does seem to be a standard benchmark for demonstrating a level of skill that is somewhere above being a rank novice. :)

Both obverse and reverse of the band is shown. Material is 5/2 mercerized cotton.

Thank you. :) (Smile)

Which fiber(s) do you use?  I hear wool can be very challenging when it comes to getting a neat finish (almost everything I've woven to date is either cotton fiber or a cotton/synthetic blend).

I weaved trims for an early medieval dress, so I had to use wool :) Maybe using something less "proper" from the historical reenactment point of view would make it easier. Thanks for the tip :)

Would flax be "proper" in some situations?  I don't have personal experience with linen fiber but from what I've seen it can give a very neat finish (though flax doesn't take colors as well as wool so there aren't as many colors to choose from).

I will have to check, but it well might be "proper" :) Thanks! Colours are not really a problem, as medieval palette was limited anyway :)
