Can you explain why RR would used lacing on Trent 700s and sheathing on other Trents, please?

It has always been so (unless the looms have changed on the 700 very recently). The 700 happens to be an old engine, the oldest Trent still in production. If it ain't broke.... especially in aero engines where changing anything takes an awful lot of effort and money once an engine is certified.

We were taught to use marline hitches in waxed linen tying at Bell-Fruit in the 1970's. It always looked so very neat, especially when performed by an experienced hand!
