The First Day of Stuz'a
Taking place shortly after First Sunrise
festivities have concluded, this day of Stuz'a is traditionally marked by some by spinning a commemorative yarn or thread gathered from pieces of all the work done the previous year. This is also a noteworthy holiday for weavers
, who can now begin working with the previous year's thread (in some cases, the previous year's commemorative thread of pieces of fluff from the year before that
may form a base layer or initiate a project).
The Second Day of Stuz'a
Taking place shortly after Last Sunset
, this is the day of Stuz'a where new winter and heavy-duty cloths begin to be manufactured in preparation for Migration
. This is especially true of Greater
and Low Pass Stenza
, who developed cloths for conditions common in the Frozen Wastes
. It is common to share stories of weaving mishaps great and small beginning on this day.
The Third Day of Stuz'a
This is the day of spinning, marked just before the Stenza embark on the return journey during Migration
. All the remaining fiber from the year is gathered onto distaves
and the spindles
prepared. Spinning proper begins as the journey starts, to occupy the hands while Stenza sing The Migration Cycle
and trade other stories back and forth. While they do not need to, pups
often attempt to help, frequently causing an awful lot of trouble along the way.
