When the paper was published, Ray Rogers, the scientist who had taken the photomicrophs, read it and his reaction was, "That's ridiculous! I have sample fibers we took during the examination. " Rogers put a sample under the microscope and got the shock of his career when, instead, he confirmed their theory!
He saw that clearly there were cotton threads interwoven into linen threads and the cotton was dyed to match the linen.

Other famous cases include the following: Oetzi the Iceman: In 1991, hikers in the Oetztal Alps in Italy’s Tyrol region found the mummified remains of a man that had been extraordinarily preserved by the ice, “Oetzi.” He was shot in the back with an arrow but lived for some time after his fatal wound, according to atomic microscope images of blood cells.This is possible because linen is highly resistant to dye but cotton is not.The repair was done so expertly that even under high magnification and close inspection none of the STURP team had noticed any difference.Without identifying the object photographed or who took the images, they submitted the images to three textile experts, each of whom said the images definitely showed an expert repair using a "French reweave" technique common in Europe in the early modern era.The technique wove in a piece of cotton and the cotton was then dyed to match the color of the surrounding linen.
