Yellow wool with two parallel bands woven in brown wool. The designs inside each band consist of squares alternating with octagons. Each band ends with a cross on each side. Yellow wool and neutral-colored linen are used to define the details achieved by a flying shuttle. The frame of each band consists of loop-like repeated motifs.
