The film shows flax-spinning. The fine yarn is spun by the farmer's wife, the tow by the maid. The film presents both spinning procedures in comparison, in order to point out the different working methods. It shows all the stages of the spinning process from the fastening of the material, the drawing out of the starting thread, the feeding of the thread into the spindle, and the continuous spinning to the removing of the finished bobbin.
