Jim Hughes working on a 'scutcher'. Here the cleaned and fluffed out cotton fibres are laid out into a 'blanket', then wrapped onto a 'lap' (like a Swiss roll). The lap can be seen and it is almost its full size. Jim has inserted a metal rod in place of the hollow one around which the lap has been formed, and will shortly 'doff' the lap.
