On the last Sunday in June, the Westerwald Landscape Museum will be holding its traditional flat day with the popular Spinnfest from 10 am to 5 pm. The family day to try out and join in this year is all about flax, linen and wool.
"Who spins the longest thread?" It says for the ever-growing number of female and male participants. From far away, the spinning enthusiasts travel to Hachenburg. In the Landscape Museum, you will have the delightful opportunity of making as long a thread as possible from a handful of fibers! All results will be awarded on the court.
The supporting program offers many offers. On a linen market, various staple fibers, knitting wool, cloths and fabrics are offered. Special handicraft techniques such as needle binders, wool dyeing and blue print can be admired by the visitors and even tried out. A special magnet for lovers of the hand spindle should be the filigree wood products of the family Matthes from Elgershausen. Their woodturning workshop is widely appreciated among experts in the wool industry.
