Lastly, fragment C is a narrow strip (13 cm long, 1.5-2.5 cm wide) of fairly fine 2/2 twill. This strip may conceivably have been a belt loop fastened to a brók waist band. They are reddish in colour and have been dyed with walnut shells.The next set of relevant fragments, 39 A-B, are interpreted as a brók made from lozenge twill and broken twill.

Based on them, Hägg suggests that the knee-length garment would have been made of linen, or of wool with a linen lining.

Für die Körperbestattungen einmalig sind die Bronzehaken des Grabes Bj 905, die dem Plan nach an den Waden, gleich unter der Kniekehle lagen.

There are three fragments, 22 A-C, that are believed to belong to a finely woven wollen brók. Vermutlich fragmentarischer Gurtabschluß einer Hose aus ziemlich feiner rötlicher Wolle in Rauten-, Spitz- und Gleichgratköper. Teil C: Schmaler Streifen aus ziemlich feinem Gleichgratköper 2/2. (Ursprünglich vielleicht Schlaufe vom Gurtabschluß.) Länge 13 cm, Breite 1,5-2,5 cm. Inga Hägg: Die Textilfunde aus dem Hafen von Haithabu, p 28, illustration modified from p 29 The largest fragment (22 A) is made of alternating lozenge and broken twill.

Erhalten sind drei Teile (Teile A-C), die beim Auffinden um zwei Holzstäbe gewickelt waren. Zwei Kanten abgesäumt (Naht 1-2) und eine dritte Kante mit einer Reihe von überwendlichen Stichen (Naht 3). Teil B: Zwikkelförmiges Fragment aus Rautenköper mit einer Webkante und zwei stark ausgefransten Kanten. Two of the edges have a hem stitched in place (1 and 2 in the drawing), and there is a third edge with a series of overcast stitches (3). Fragment B is a fragment of lozenge twill shaped as a gore with a selvedge (along the top) and two strongly frayed edges. It is 9 cm long (along the selvedge) and 6 cm wide.

In addition to the harbour finds, Inga Hägg also analysed the textile remains from the settlement and graveyard of Haithabu.

This provides additional information about what the Viking inhabitants of the town were wearing.

According to her, the wool fragments were plain woollen twill, and each hook was hooked into an iron ring which had been sewn into the lower edge of a knee-length garment.

These rings were not mentioned by Geijer, but she must have known about them as they appear to be the only source of traces of linen.

The textile material is from the 10th century and was analysed by Inga Hägg, who wrote reports in German, with short summaries in Swedish.
