      Stamerov states that the rectangular ubrus was 2m by 40-50cm. I suspect he was
      refering to Tsaritsa Anastasiya's surviving ubrus. I've made a couple of
      _very_ simple ubrusy with these dimensions (approx. 2yd x 2ft), and they seem
      to work well, although I'm still working out the best way to wrap them.
