Historic Techniques for Fulling Flannel

Eliza West, a masters fellow at Winterthur Museum is currently researching the fulling mills of 19th c. America.  She is going to be experimenting with different fulling techniques to establish the rate of shrinkage that would have been standard for flannel cloth of that period.  Justin Squizzero of The Burroughs Garrett will be weaving the reproduction flannel and Kate Smith of Eaton Hill Textile Works will be consulting and helping with the finishing.
