• After the wool’s been thoroughly combed, it’s spun into yarn. It takes about 36 bundles of wool to make one medium-sized rug, and each bundle takes 2.5 hours to spin. The spinning is traditionally done by women, and Jesus told us that his father disapproved of him doing it even for demonstrations! Alas, his mother was at church.
