Experience the traditions and techniques used to spin the gossamer thread yarn used to create Orenburg shawls.
The hand knitted shawls of Orenburg, located in the steppes of the southern Ural Mountains, set a world standard for exquisite handspun yarns and delicate lace patterning. The beauty and durability of these heirloom creations begin with the yarn: cashmere from the densely-coated goats of the region, an unusual way of preparing the fleece on a Central Asian-style comb, and skillful spindle spinning.
Two disks. Run Time: Approximately 120 minutes
