Interesting word! It is the Finnish woven wall hanging. It has a long history of make and design - Now very popular 

Anyway, it earned me a D2 and the various Mallachs each got 4 points but  I think Efrem is ahead in the rolling scores and is thus the next dealer while Alan is the real winnah

Thanks, I think!

The various categories of sake in my fake def are real, but as far as I know there's no single catch-all term for all of them.

Anyhow, I'm about to start teaching a class at Rhode Island College. It will last until close to 10 pm U.S. east coast time. By the time I get home and get something to eat I won't be awake enough to deal a new word. So, expect it sometime Wednesday morning in that same time zone, with about 45-48 hours to get your defs in.
