Description
Offering a blend of technical knowledge, history, and easy-to-use tips, this in-depth collection of spinning wisdom explores three fundamental areas of yarn production: understanding fibers, managing yarn structure, and making yarns that meet the spinner's needs, illustrated with beautiful color photos throughout. The book considers our uses of fibers, from the historically rich traditions of plant and animal fibers to recent advances in synthesized materials, and provides detailed instructions for four intermediate projects that use a range of spun fibers, from sturdy plied yarns to playful novelty yarns.

"5 out of 5 stars. Fascinating reading. This is an excellent, detailed book with lots of technical information."Knitting News
