Yorick

("Yorick" by Handmaden Designs LLC)
Yorick is a Moibus/European/Persian weave (with a slight Rhino interaction). It is closely related to the weave Prospero. (The name is do the that fact that I'm a little bored regarding weave names, and so decided to go with a Shakespearean theme.) 

Yorick is one of my own weaves.
