The Spinning Wheel

"Scotland is famous for its home industries, although they are not now so flourishing as in days past before the introduction of the machine-made article.

The peasants put in a good many of their spare hours weaving and spinning, turning out linen and cloth of excellent quality, as witness the well known Harris tweeds."
