Nettle- weaving part

Nettles on weaving loom.

Before the nettle reached the loom,  it was twice boiled in ash (lye). I got rid of the leftovers that could be responsible for the spoiling. As a result, the nettle fabric becomes resistant to decay, destruction – even if it frequently and intensively undergoes soaking. That is why the nettle was a great raw material for fishing nets.

Either way, the penultimate stage – weaving.

On the warp – flax from our field, dried, retted, broken, combed, spun, starched.
Thread – nettle – hero of this page.

Weaving loom- Harfa, Kromski.
