    Yep, Legwraps were between 7 and 10 cm wide, but the real ones found in Haithabu, which were actually woven to size and not just hemmed strips of fabric,

      Yep,

      Legwraps were between 7 and 10 cm wide, but the "real" ones found in
      Haithabu, which were actually woven to size and not just hemmed
      strips of fabric, were all twill woven, not tabby. Omly the hemmed
      fabric was tabby woven. As far as I know a rigid heddle loom can
      only produce a tabby weave.

      Hope this helps with the leg wrap question....
