Making Linen

  • Flax is harvested by being pulled out of the ground, not cut. This hard work is usually done by men
  • The stems are soaked for many days to separate all the fibers, which are beaten until they're soft

  • The weaving is done on a loom which is a frame made of 2 beams and held by 4 pegs driven into the ground
