Description
Moving away from its heritage as a cottage craft practiced from necessity, yarn spinning is experiencing a renaissance as it moves toward the realms of fashion and textile arts. This abundantly illustrated guide provides a new generation of crafters with the information needed to begin spinning, describing tools and equipment, types of fibers, and spinning techniques, followed by thorough instructions for making, processing, and finishing off a skein of yarn. It includes "recipes" for making many types of yarn—bouclés, worsteds, and flecked and chunky yarns—all shown in close-up color photos, as well as a selection of projects using homespun yarn and tips on marketing and pricing your goods for sale.

"Whether you need help distinguishing a niddy-noddy from a nostepinne or are able to give Rumpelstiltskin a run for his money, you'll find something of interest in this impressive reference. Spinning is covered soup to nuts in ways expected ... and with a new twist (specifically, the 'recipe' chapter, discussing the raw 'ingredients' needed to create a host of interesting blends, weights, and colorways).... Newbies are given introductory advice; and experts are challenged to stretch their skills."—Yarn Market News
