Beautiful Spinning Yarn. Oh, what beautiful colors.

Berries, Natural Dyes by Philosopher Queen, via Flickr. This was my first job with CW between college years: we built a fire, boiled some berries or leaves and dyed some wool spun by CW's Spinning and Weaving Shop.

Habetrot is the Celtic Goddess of Spinning and Healing. She is able to spin wool into garments in an instant, and the clothes that she makes give the wearer immunity from all disease. In fairy tales, she is depicted with an extended lower lip, which she got from wetting the wool as she spun it.

    Sorry you misunderstood me. I haven't spun flax. Wool, alpaca, mohair, dog, silk, angora even hemp and other things but not flax. I have some growing in my yard in New Mexico. It is a pretty blue flower. I don't know if it is the same as what is spun but when I read all that has to be done to process it I thought I'll pass. I haven't woven with it either. I'm not a very accomplished spinner or weaver or knitter. I have taught spinning but when a class is over my students spin better than I do. I'm a good teacher but I don't practice enough to get very good at anything. I also am slow and have poor eye hand coordination but I love playing with fiber and collecting fiber tools. I have 4 Wheels, 2 looms, 2 carders, plus hand cards and combs , ( I love carding), many fleeces, rovings, yarns and books, books, books. I promise myself and my husband that when we retire to New Mexico I'll start focusing on producing and not just collecting. I just discovered Pinterest yesterday and perhaps it will be the spark I need to get down and finish a project. You are obviously more experienced and dedicated than I but I would like to explore your boards (follow?) . I suspect I would find you very interesting. I like the pic very much. Thanks for your responses.

    Good question, it seems a bit short to be a distaff doesn't it? On the other hand she's not so tall either;) I am really impressed that you work with flax! I have woven with it and it's fabulous but if it's not kept fairly damp it has absolutely no give to it at all. I usually lay a damp towel on the warp's web to keep it flexible. Spinning it seems like it would be a cool challenge... And yes, I believe this image is from Ireland. She make's a GREAT Habetrot! Spin on sister!

    I wondered if the tall piece on the mother of all was a distaff. My phone isn't large enough to tell. I saw this pic in another pin and they said it was from Ireland. Which of course has lots of sheep

    Thanks for the information. When I spin I occasionally spritz it but not often
