Spinning Wool teaches spinners to analyse and choose fleeces and to get the best from their wheels. The book is written from the spinner's point of view, and provides information about wool that would only previously have been found in farming manuals. The book is sensitive to the rising surge in popularity of weaving, and explores a wide range of what can be produced from spinning, as well as what is happening in the spinning process and what kinds of raw materials can be incorporated into yarns. This book covers all the basics as well as building up to more advanced spinning techniques. Alongside the step-by-step yarn designs and the section on knitting and weaving projects, this book is perfect for anyone wanting to delve into the world of spinning.
