HRS 1278 Bury, Wikes Woollen Mill, Tentering 1979

The process of tentering involves attaching the damp woven woollen cloth across a frame known as a tenter-frame. In the same way that when a woollen pullover is washed it can shrink as it dries, this is prevented by keeping the textile taught on the frame attaching it with a series of sharp hooks on either side known as tenter-hooks.
