Check here for an article about early textiles found in Scotland, including a possible Pictish (or at least Early Medieval) hood, the 3rd century "Falkirk Tartan" and the Rogart shirt (page 18 onwards):

I'm sure there are finds of linen cloths attached to the silver or metal surface.
I remember info about high quality linen textile from Llan-gors grannog(Wales), that dates 9-10c.

Thanks for posting this excellant article. Looking at the photographs of the Rogart Shirt, it appears to be wool, although they never say what the material is.

I thought Giraldus illustrated the Man-Bear-Pig, oh no, that was Al Gore. :lol:

The Llangors textile piece is a really interesting one given it's complexity. It is much reminding of so-called coptic garnments used in the late roman period, Britain included, that probably survived among the nobility and churchmen.

But it is also interesting to note that Brecon/Brycheiniog was a welsh kingdom founded by an irish dynasty in the 5th century. It is temptating to see here a piece of garnment that may bear gaelic influence aswell. If so there is few limit for those among you who wish to reproduce a kingly lèine!
