Spinning a Yarn

Come on a journey through Spinning History. Marvel at the spinning of the Drop Spindle in use from the Early Middle ages and possibly before, the click of the Walking Wheel in evidence from the 1300’s, the handle-driven and beautifully wood turned Jersey Wheel through to the whir of the Treadle Wheel.  Watch as Emma skilfully turns wool into yarn, to be used for one of the most important industries in the Channel Islands at that time – the knitting industry.
