Coast Salish spinning specialist Liz Hammond-Kaarremaa guides you through a history of Coast Salish spinning, looking at the fibres and tools used by Coast Salish nations in these powerful robes and blankets. A close examination of the many different yarns reveals mountain goat wool, Indian hemp/dogbane, stinging nettles, and wool from the extinct Salish Woolly dog. One robe likely contains a surprisingly unusual fibre! Come find out more!
