Wool educated

WI members learn from an expert spinner.

It was a very busy June meeting when members and guests of Stanhoe and Barwick WI were treated to Celia Gwynn demonstrating spinning a woollen thread.

We were shown exactly how a small tuft of wool could be transformed, either by hand or by the use of an Ashford Wheel into a long length of yarn which could be twisted into various plys and produced as a skein. It was the history of spinning accompanied by a deep knowledge of sheeps wool and with a commercial spinoff into associated products made from the oil from the wool.

We were well educated and entertained for the afternoon.

Much merriment broke out later on as we were all persuaded to be part of a group photograph of members ready for our centenary year.
