Fibre Day Coming Up!
Enjoy the warm weather at Westfield and see how various fibres are processed. The weaver will be working the mid-19th century barn loom. Master spinners will be spinning raw wool into yarn. Perhaps you would like to try your hand at carding sheep's wool or use the drop spindle. The Cambridge Spinners and Weavers will also be on hand with their natural dye baths. Visit the Tailor Shop or watch a demonstration showing how flax plant fibres are transformed into the raw material used to make linen fabric.
