Yarns made from a variety of natural fibres will be on display for examination and comparison. There will be a number of different weaving looms on hand,  i.e. warp-weighted, tapestry, horizontal 4-shaft. The historical significance of each will be discussed and demonstrated how each is used to make cloth.
