I just turned this up: A complete cloak, dated by radiocarbon to 350 BC, turned up in a bog in Gerum, Sweden in 1920. A recent article (admittedly in Swedish, but with English captions for the illos) discusses how it was woven, using a technique called rundväv ("round-weave"). Might be of interest. . .
