As a hand spinner, I love old fashioned things. 

I love the slowness of them, the simplicity.  It is one of the reasons I hand spin wool.

 That's exactly why I loved this video on YouTube.   It tells of how the hand spinning and even the carding differed in different districts in Ireland.  I was drawn to handspinning because it is so "simple", and yet, it has been commercialized a massive amount compared to what these women experienced.  Wheels no longer have restriction to a "district", and hand carding?  Who needs to do that anymore?  *sigh*

 This documentary was filmed in 1979.  Enjoy the sheep, the accents, the wool, and the wonder of old fashioned simplicity.
