ok. so who sat around and thought about this stuff? i mean i can see the link from sheep/bunny fiber into knitting. but from what you just described? heck no. see...the smart people took the flax seed and boosted their immune systems and thus progressed to spinning sheep/bunny fiber. that's my reader digest version ;)


Wow - things I never knew. You're really getting into this spinning stuff!


That's quite a production. I think I'll leave off flax for a while.


Thank you for sharing the info! I love finding out more about different fibers.


What an awesome blog! Thanks for the flax info. I'll stick to protein fibers for now...

Wow. Next time I see flax yarn, I'm going to have a new appreciation for it. Thanks for the lesson!


Now I know that spinners were so happy when wool came along!


A spinning friend gave me some flax seed last month, so I'm going to put it in the ground and follow your directions!


Huh - makes shearing a bunny sound simple. Thanks for sharing!

    A series of barn photos I've taken or been sent. Barns are magical to me - they have so much character, and provide so much for the animals and farmers.
