Quotations
  • 1964: Winchester itself was an early centre of the manufacture of chanlons, which were rugs used for coverlets or counterpanes, and in the consuetudinary of the city, which dates back at least to the early years of the thirteenth century, the looms are divided into two classes, the 'great looms' used for burel weaving paying 5s. per year, and the 'little looms' for chanlons paying 6d. or 12d., according to their size. — L.F. Salzman, English Industries of the Middle Ages, p. 200.
