About this Item

Created, handset and printed at Christinsbrunn Closter. Fine oversize stapled wraps with clean bright text throughout. Nicely illustrated. "Farmers in Colonial America depended on their own crops and livestock for clothing and food. They raised the flax plant to make linen cloth and sheep for wool cloth. Flax seed and sheep were brought from Europe in the 17th and 18th century. From the planting of the flax seed in spring, it takes a year before linen is ready to be made into clothing. Making wool cloth from sheep takes less time, fewer steps and fewer tools. This booklet with show how flax and wool were processed by hand in Colonial times using simple tools and how you can use the same tools today to make your own clothing. With samples of flax seed, wool fiber, flax thread, wool thread and linsey-woolsey included in the book". Bookseller Inventory # 34904
