A beautiful and informative tribute to the wool industry in Conwy Valley, from hand shearing on the Roberts' farm overlooking the Conwy River to the processing of the fleeces in the Trefriw Woollen Mills and the spinning of the wool into colourful, traditionally patterned cloth. Shot by Alfred Mawby (b.1918) of Llanrwst, a member of Colwyn Cine Club and later a founder member of Gwrst Cine Club.
