Overview

Spinning and weaving is an established craft. It has an ancient history dating back to gods and goddesses of mythical times.

In very early times, spinning was done by means of distaff and spindle until the spinning wheel was invented sometime in the 14th century. Even then, the ancient art was laborious that any item made for consumption was very limited and pricey.

Modern day spinning and weaving tools are now more streamlined that many people, women mostly, can enjoy the craft and become master spinners and weavers without too much backbreaking work. The homemaker can start this craft right at home nowadays as spinning and weaving equipment and materials can be found readily anywhere.

Weaving starts with spinning. The art of twisting together fibers to make a length of threads is the art of spinning. Weaving is the art form of crossing and interlacing the threads to form a specific pattern.
