Of Further Interest

The above is a link to the Norse Folk Museum-there are approximately 200 spinning related tools and wheels. 

And  a link to a nice blog with an excellent photo of what appears to be a complete  “Jacquard ” type loom.

The loom looks period ( 18th or 19th Century ). Take a close look at as many details as you can. It’s not often  you get to see that type of loom here in the U.S.

Please check this one out too – it shows a nice example of a “four-poster” loom, although the underslung beater isn’t original.
