Flax spinning, domestic workshops, putting-out
production and increased exports are all changes
that affected wool production in Iceland
following the introduction of manufacturing
workshops to the country in the late 18th
century. In this book, wool production is used
as a key to understanding 18th-century society,
touching, as it does, on a wide range of
subjects such as farming practices, occupations,
division of labour, production techniques,
export, and efforts to increase production
within the rural society. Hrefna Róbertsdóttir,
historian, explores economic thought in Iceland
and Denmark in the 18th century and relates it
to local wool production in Iceland in the
second half of the century. In the process, she
sheds new light on 18th-century society and
draws attention to various economic, social and
moral aspects of manufacturing.
