In the collection from Lovelock cave, gathered by Loud in 1912, there recently came to light a piece of finger-woven textile which, at first glance, appeared similar to the Apocynum fabric from Humboldt cave described by O'Neale (1947). Loud did not describe or mention the textile, though he illustrates it (Loud and Harrington, 1929, Pl. 53a), and one suspects that, being reluctant to disturb the bead strands to which it was affixed, he did not recognize the specimen for what it was.
The sling (Fig. 67, a), made probably of Apocynum, was wrapped with a compound necklace of Olivella shell bead strands and was found about the neck of a partially mummified child about 6 years old. The description of the necklace, the burial, and a photograph of the necklace itself with the sling clearly apparent, occur in Loud and Harrington's report on Lovelock cave (1929, p. 105, Pls. 10, 53a).
