Just had to cross-post this here from the Handspinning Corner:
Hi there! I'm a wannabe spinner (I just signed up for a March beginner spinning class at Loop in Philly). I wanted to share that I just stumbled across this delightful 1978 mini-documentary called "Hands," about sheep trade and spinning in Ireland. There are enough hardy and skilled hands, rosy faces, sheepy goodness, fleeces, and spinning wheels (including great/walking wheels) in this half-hour to keep me smiling for hours. Hope you enjoy!
