Speaking of warped thoughts,

"Warp and weft threads have two different purposes. Warp threads are a thin and strong foundation. They're traditionally un-dyed wool or linen. In medieval tapestries, weft threads were usually vat-dyed wool yarn. On the finest tapestries wool was sometimes supplemented by more expensive silk or fine metallic (gold and silver) threads. It's important to realize that weft yarn provides all the color to the tapestry!...

The most famous series of tapestries in an American museum is "The Hunt of The Unicorn" at The Cloisters (part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York). These seven tapestries depict the sequence of the hunt, ending with the caught unicorn tied up pathetically in a too-small corral...

Probably the most artistically important tapestries in Europe are a series of six called "The Lady and the Unicorn". Each tapestry in this series is said to represent a different sense: taste, hearing, sight, smell, touch, and love. One very interesting thing about these tapestries is that they were discovered bundled-up, hidden, and extensively damaged by rats..."
