Tassel (Peru), 1000–1200

Large tassel with long heavy twisted red wool fringes and wool yarn stretched in 1/4″ band of white, red, green, yellow over the top of the core, and a thick stiff stem of cotton yarns wound tightly with cotton threads over which stem stitch appears to have been worked in a design of geometrical rosettes, with a diamond center, in black, red, white, yellow wool ground.
