Khipu Notes

1. Primary Cord Structure (see illustration on notes).
2. 4B: The pendants designated 4B [but marked as "unknown" spin on these entries] have a braided structure with 4 elements. Each element has 2-4 singles. On 2s1s1 and 5s1s2, two elements are W and two MB, giving a striped appearance. These cords may not be cotton; the colors are very deep and bright. These braided cords are of camelid (confirmed by Patricia Victoria, conservador).
3. There are several places where cords are knotted together to form a continuous string. The colors of these strings are usually the same or similar, but the thicknesses may vary.
