Experiments indicate, however, an output in the region of no more than 20 m spun thread per hour. Still the spinning is the least time consuming – also combing and preparations of the wool take time. As for weaving, around 70 cm of cloth per day on the vertical loom is regarded as a reasonable estimate. To produce a cloth of medium thread counts, c. 70 × 70 cm – a day’s work – around 1680 m of spun wool was needed,16 giving an idea of the time consuming process of supplying enough yarn for the loom.
