3589Re: [SCA-Archery] tassels?
- Oct 1, 2000Greetings Julianna
My Lady made one for me as a token it is of handspun unwashed (nice shade of
brown) wool. The bushy part of the tassel is about six inches long and
makes a nice handfull when you grab it. I use it every time I shoot the
clout for taking the dirt of the arrow points. It works great... the
lanolin(sp) helps to keep rust off the points... the brown color keeps the
dirt and rust from showing. The current English Longbow Society (Hardey"s
long bow book) still uses them.
