Aglia tau moth, or the Tau Emperor, is a European moth.
Its wingspan is 64-80 mm.
Though these moths fly mostly at night, males look for females at daytime, too.
Adult aglia tau moths do not eat at all.
The wings in this pattern can be woven using square or herringbone stitch. You can also loom them.
I wove these wings using herringbone stitch.
The body is woven using a sort of tubular square stitch.
You’ll need some fishing line with diameter 0,15 mm, a beading needle size 11-15 and 15 colours of seed beads size 11.
2 toho beads palettes are offered: for
opaque beads and for metal-lined ones.
The pattern includes a photo of the finished moth and 20 graphs showing the weaving of the wings, of the body and joining the wings and the body.
