I asked to meet a cotton handspinner in Ghana, but this was difficult to find, as the practice has virtually died out with the advent of machine-spun yarns. Finally I found someone who had heard of someone in Daboya (a very small town) who still did it, so off I went in search of the spinner.
And I found her! and, coincidentally, a community of indigo dyers. Riches!
