Dressing a distaff with wool

I love this video that I came across when reading old posts in the Spindle Lore forum on Ravelry. No, I don’t know what the lady says, but I can hear a word I know very well: “rock”. That’s the word for (spinning) “wheel” in Swedish. It originates in a German word meaning “distaff”. The spinner also shows a quite efficient way of preparing wool for spinning without other tools than her hands.

EDIT 26.4.14: so the video is no longer available, or there’s some other trouble.  I’m sorry, it really was a nice video.
