at the Mill

Of course we couldn't go all the way to New Brunswick without visiting the Briggs & Little Woollen Mill. When I visited the Mill in August the machines weren't running. But on Monday, we got to see the whole process from start to finish.

Sorting and Culling
Washing and Drying
Dying
Picking and Carding
Spinning (applying the twist)
Plying
Creating the skeins

A great visit! And the Littles were gracious to a fault - as usual!
