Coast Salish spinning specialist Liz Hammond-Kaarremaa will guide 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 yarns will reveal mountain goat wool; some may have Indian hemp/dogbane, some probably have stinging nettles, a few may have wool from the extinct Salish Woolly dog. And, one robe most likely contains a surprisingly unusual fibre!
