Mitteleuropa, Tirol - Flachsverarbeitung: Reinigen des Garnes

Central Europe, Tyrol - Flax Processing: Yarn Cleaning

After spinning, the yarn is wound around a reel to achieve uniform lengths for ease of further processing. Thereafter, the yarn is boild in potash leach, and then rinsed twice: one time in ice-cold running water of a brook, and another time in hot water at the house. After cleaning the yarn is dried, rippled to remove wood particles, and finally put on the spools.
