Default How to make your own cloth

Advertise Here

In a pinch, this is how to make your own cloth. I found this lady in Africa and couldn't resist making a video about her.

You know, I've seen automated looms tons of times before, but they never made sense. Seeing it done by hand gives me a whole new understanding of cloth.

that is awesome! I can weave on an American made loom but I am going to study your video and learn how to do her set up. Fantastic!

Great video and fine lady as well.
I have 2 looms my dad picked up some where,I have to find all the parts seeing he spread things out .
Always thought it would be a good skill to learn when cloth becomes hard to get post SHTF.
Making yarn is an art as well that actually should come first.
I enjoy sewing ,ya a guy that sews.
I have a few machines ,and eventually want to find a good machine for doing leather as well.
2 more life times would not be enough to learn all the stuff I want.
