my brain has been melting this week with old sheets and textiles, i have boxes of them and after a while the brain melts at identifying the difference of century+old well washed cotton and linen all done on victorian and older looms, so for those well washed examples of cloth, without bothering to look at it under a microscope, whats a good way to tell the difference,
