On Sunday, we headed northeast and inland, to Rydal and Boras to see the textile museums.

This is the textile museum in Rydal.

This was an actual spinning and weaving mill, and this is the original equipment. It still works.

There were many exhibits of looms through the different stages of development, from warp-weighted looms to 20th century production looms, with an interesting display of various production looms. I finally figured out how a fly-shuttle works!

Warp-weighted loom. We also visited the museum in Boras, and had a wonderful tour, where all types of industrial looms were demonstrated. We were so fascinated, that we forgot to take pictures!
