Re: wool and plastic



Putting the tapestry into a freezer might make the plastic brittle enough to
release.  It will have melted some around the wool fibers and it will probably
not come away without some gentle pursuasion, which means some damage to the
wefts.  I'd suggest looking up a textiles conservator for help and even
sending it along instead of dinking around with it.  Although I am a tapestry
weaver I'd be reluctant to mess with it without some advice/assistance from a
textiles specialist.
