Proverbs 31:19

She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
Girl with spindle and distaff

A distaff was originally a short staff that held a bundle of fibers - of flax or wool, for example - ready to be spun into yarn or thread. Since spinning was a basic daily task customarily done by women, the distaff came to be the symbol for the work or domain of women.

This is definately saying that this woman is working hard. She is clothing her family. I believe it is a direct clue into how she clothes her family in scarlet and purple..
