Greetings all. Sometime ago some posted a link to an archological site
in Southern Poland/Ukraine. I check in from time to time because things
change. Recently I came across spindle whorls and loom weights. I did a
drawing from the archeological site giving the dimensions of the
spindle whorl. These whorls would resemble the whorl on the Russian
spindle in the photo section. You can find my photos in my photo folder
labeled Magdalena. Yes, there are two folders named Magdalena. For me,
my folder comes up as the first one in alphabetical order.
If anyone has any information on Polish spinning or weaving I love to
see it. If anyone could help with the dimensions of the loom weights
that would also be greatly appreciated. There was also information on
the archeological site on linen fabric processing and extant flax in
the first stage of the process.
