In less technologically developed societies prior to industrial mechanization, women took advantage of their free time to spin wool and linen manually in order to use yarn to make fabrics on hand looms.

Nas sociedades tecnologicamente menos desenvolvidas em épocas anteriores à mecanização industrial as mulheres aproveitavam as horas de lazer para fiar à mão a lã e o linho destinados ao fabrico de tecidos nos teares manuais.
