Can anyone tell me what a Gulon Weaver is and what did they weave?

At a guess I'd say Gulon is a district/area -Alec

Hi

It is possible that this relates to the wolverine species Gulo which had long dense fur.

"Gulo gulo is reminiscent of a large marten with a heavy build, large head, relatively small and rounded ears, a short tail, and massive limbs. Wolverines have long, dense fur which is generally blackish brown with a light brown band extending along each side of the body from shoulder to rump and joining over the base of the tail."

Geographic Range
Wolverines range from northern Europe and Siberia through northern North America. Their distribution once extended as far south as Colorado, Indiana, and Pennsylvannia.

This may be a false lead and I cannot find any mention on the internet of Gulon Weaving.

You might want to search for specialt historical weaving sites and contact the authors of the site.

Regards
