Making Linen the Old Way

Updated: Feb 14, 2019

Well, phooey. I just can’t find that series of videos that showed those lovely old women harvesting flax and turning it into linen. Please tell me they’re not gone! A Snickers bar to anyone who finds them for me.

**Edit:

Well, I guess I get the Snickers bar. Found them. The above video is still pretty neat so I'll keep it. But these, well, these are just sublime. It will truly give you a new appreciation for this linen with which we are becoming so intimate.
