FIBER: LINEN, WOOL AND WEAVING

14:27 min. | Emily Rancier gives a tour of her fiber studio, a treasure chest of spinning wheels, looms, and hand-tools designed for the art of turning linen and wool into clothing and items for the home. Rancier is a fiber artist whose skills range from spinning the wool from local sheep, to dying hand-wrought yarn with natural colorants, to thrashing her own flax to weave linen.
