Musterfield Farm

One of the things at Farm Days that has always fascinated me is Gina and her ability to take flax from a plant and through all the steps required make gorgeous linen fabric.

The links will take you to a story book telling of flax to thread. The pictures are from this Sunday at Musterfield.
Want to see a bunch of women get excited? Tell them there is fresh flax on its way.

This is the flax growing in one of Musterfield Farm's vegetable gardens.

Gina running flax through the hackles to remove the tow (less desirable) from the good.
Telling visitors to the farm about flax/linen.

I did not see her spinning this time, and therefore did not get any pictures.
