Three yellow wool plain weave fragments. One fragment has a selvage with two wefts. A successive weft was inserted into a new shed from the selvage when the previous weft was used up or broke, therefore sometimes it can be observed on the surface that three wefts are in a common shed.
Warp: wool, Z twisted, single, yellow, 18 ends/cm; Weft: wool, Z twisted, single, yellow, 16 lats/cm. Weave structure: 1/1 plain weave.

- Acquisition notes
- The 1907-11-11 group refers to objects from Stein's First Central Asian Expedition, 1900-01. According to Stein's Introduction to 'Ancient Khotan' (1907), the expedition was funded by the Governments of India, the Panjab (Punjab) and from provincial funds of Bengal. All the finds were shipped to London for sorting, research and publication. The Government of India then recommended that Dr Rudolf Hoernle, together with the British Museum, should determine the distribution of the finds (BM Archives, Stein Papers, CE32/23/5).
