Alloa And Stirling

ALLOA and Stirling (Woollen Yam Counts)
This system is based on the number of "spyndles" of 11,250 yards each that weigh 24-lb. gives the counts, or the number of lengths of 480 yards per lb. equals counts (11,250 : 24 = 480 yards). In this district a cut is 240 yards, and 48 cuts are called one "spyndle".
