This is a new blog, created as part of The Woolly Way of Ireland. We wanted to have a History/Heritage section, but it is such a vast area, we decided it deserved its own blog!
We picked the name Scéilín, because in truth, a lot of our knowledge of Textiles comes from manuscripts, old travel journals and stories. Archaeological finds can never give you the full exact picture, just a story of what might have been. We hope to spin that yarn!
If you have any information, articles, books, links, etc you would like to recommend as we develop this blog, please let us know. You can leave a comment here, in the Community Textile Forum or email us at woollyway[AT]email[DOT] com.
