It is impossible not to be moved by the Bayeux Tapestry which is, incidentally, an embroidery. This exceptional piece of work almost 1000 years old has stood the test of time by a combination of miracles. Apart from the fact that it disappeared the reappeared, it is extremely surprising that a textile object has resisted for so long.
Here is a series of cross stitch projects which are interpretations of certain passages of this embroidery measuring 70m in length which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2007. They all use Laine Saint-Pierre darning wool.
