Spindles and Looms was a rather successful business, but always aroused suspicion in its neighbors. The facility seemed to be a gathering place for young children, and the machines inside the factory would often run late into the evening, or even through the night. Furthermore, Spindles and Looms was notorious for keeping poor documentation, which became even more of an issue when workers suddenly started disappearing.
In 1868, Clara O'Dea asked the Assassins Evie and Jacob Frye to infiltrate Spindles and Looms and free the child workers inside. The twins also managed to assassinate the facility's overseer, causing the Blighter guards to flee, and allowing the Rooks to place the factory under their control.
