Do you like my videos. Become a. Philippe de Girard. Philippe Henri de Girard (February 1, – Aug ) was a French engineer and inventor of the first flax spinning frame inas well as the name-sake for the town of Żyrardów in Poland.

He was also the uncredited inventor of food preservation using tin cans. Last month Clotho’s Handspinners, the handspinning group I am part of, sponsored a Flax to Linen husband, Walt, and I hosted it at our place and it was wonderful.

Flax mills are mills which process earliest mills were developed for spinning yarn for the linen industry. John Kendrew (an optician) and Thomas Porthouse (a clockmaker), both of Darlington developed the process from Richard Arkwright's water frame, and patented it in The first machine was set up in Low Mill on the River Skerne at Darlington, which Kendrew used to grind glass.

Flax spinning frame development lagged decades behind that of cotton. The linen industry suffered from the problem of a regular supply of yarn. James Hargreaves (also Hargraves) invented the spinning Jenny for cotton in The foundation of machine spinning of flax was laid by John Kendrew and Thomas Porthouse or Porteous, from Darlington.

Spinning and weaving goes back to the dawn of civilization to at least years ago. Weaving relates to basketry and began about BCE with flax. Spinning must have developed first with weaving later.

For example, flax fields, flax cultivation and production, line flax (long fiber flax), flax tow (short fiber flax), flax spinning and flax yarns, and also certain types of flax fabrics, especially those of a heavier industrial kind.

The advantages of flax and the articles made from the fibers are increasingly appreciated. Flax needs 5 times less fertilisers and pesticides than cotton to grow. The foundation of machine spinning of flax was laid by John Kendrew and Thomas Porthouse of Darlington, who, insecured a patent for a mill or machine upon new principles for spinning yarn from hemp, tow, flax or wool.

As you may remember, I picked up some flax fibre recently. I decided to give it a whorl on my Quebec wheel as this wheel was originally used for spinning flax. I spun up a few meters of water retted flax top counterclockwise and plied it clockwise using the Andean plying method (where you wrap it around your hand and ply from both ends).

Ive decided to work on a free flax spinning script, that will always run smooth without any errors. Find the script in the repository or click this link: Master Flax.

The scutching process separates the impurities from the raw material, such as the seeds from raw cotton or the straw and woody stem from flax fibers.

Scutching can be done by hand or by a. Flax tops on the other hand consist of short lengths of flax (about 15 cm) which are overlapped to make a continuous top and can be spun without a distaff, just like wool. Stricks are usually prepared by hand whilst tops are prepared by machine, hence the price difference.
