the shore below the line or roll of seaweed thrown up by the tide (rolag
roid), is according to Highland belief an asylum from all kinds of supernatural beings that haunt the night--Fairies, ghosts or evil spirits.
The combed bundle of fibers is called a rolag

To ready the tow for spinning, I carded it using dog brushes, making rolags
the same as I had done in class for wool.
