HEMP TEXTILE ROOM GUIDE

18.  READINGS ON TEXTILES.

I had the pleasure of learning about hemp fiber from the practical point of view and wasn't overly biased to expect a coarse product.  I was amazed at how soft it was.  The picture to the right shows me teasing (cleaning) a batch of vat retted hemp, which bleached white as snow in the sun.  In my distant past I had worked with wool for a short period, shearing, cleaning, carding, spinning and dyeing wool.  This knowledge came in very handy for the museum curator of such a famous fiber plant.
