episode nine: mini mills
welcome to the ninth episode of from field to skin! this episode follows on the heels of our eighth episode of developing an all-natural sock yarn with the help of long way homestead, and actually goes into the process of operating a mini mill. the episode opens with an interview with belfast mini mills, a canadian-based company that supplies mini mills all over the world, and features behind-the-scenes footage of mill equipment in use at fleece & harmony and long way homestead. the majority of the footage was shot on unneeded mi’kmaq territory in rural prince edward island, with the long way homestead clips shot on treaty one territory in eastern manitoba.
