Hello everyone! We have a member, Barbara Brumagim, who took a wonderful trip to Sweden and has graciously shared photos with me and I am passing them along to you. Looks she enjoyed all there was about Swedish weaving and their looms
Silk Mill Loom
Hi guild friends! I am on a trip to Sweden! During my stay in Stockholm, I visited the K A Almgren museum. You can see all the original silk mill machinery still in use. Punchcard Jacquard (sp?) loom, etc. it was Amazing!
It is so beautiful here in Gotland. Gotland sheep known for their unique curly coats. Bought skein to try! I also visited Faro Island — want to find out the relationship between Faro Swedish yarn and island name!
Here is a Viking loom form 800 AD. It is located on Birka Island in Sweden .
