Flax to Linen Slide Show for the LWSG

On Tuesday, November  20th, I am doing the educational program for the Langley Weavers and Spinners Guild.  I am doing a slide show of the process of growing, drying, rippling, scutching, combing and spinning flax to linen.  It was easiest to have all the photos together here on my blog and then click on them one after another.  


  1. It has been fabulous reading the process and seeing the end result in person. I know the people at the guild will enjoy your presentation.

  2. I love the photo essay of your flax production. I'm really allergic to it in it's unspun form! All that work to make fibre - you have to admire the ancestors who grew & processed flax into clothing while hacking a living out of the land. Have you worked with linsey-woolsy?? I believe that's what they called the mix of linen/wool that most people wore before the turn of the 20th century.
