Waulking is a finishing process used only with woven woolen fabric. It is usually done to the rhythm of traditional music. The fabric will be woven and waiting for you. The process requires a number of people so it will be a good day to bring a friend who might be interested. Please RSVP to Lois so she knows how many to plan for. This is the Saturday May meeting for the guild. Visitors are welcome.
