“Das Spinrad” DSC-0038 - German-Russian Social, Cultural & Heritage History
The spinning wheel is the artifact used by the G-R ladies (mostly grandmothers) who did the spinning of the wool into yarn. Once the wool was spun into yarn, it was then washed again, left to dry and then either left in it's original color state or dyed a basic color. The colorful yarn was then used to knit socks, mitts, sweaters, “halsticher”, or head scarfs. The wool that was not spun into yarn was used to make batting of 1 foot x 2 feet in length and used bed comforters. (courtesy: photo-Pioneer Museum)
