From Library Journal
In 1996, Interweave published the first of their "companion" books, The Knitter's Companion. Then came The Beader's Companion and The Weaver's Companion. Now, hand spinners have their own handbook, a compendium of practical information on spinning wheels, preparing fibers for spinning, drafting, plying, fiber storage, and much more. This richly illustrated manual includes an excellent bibliography and a resource list. Public libraries with any interest in this subject will want this one. It's the type of book aspiring hand spinners will check out and then buy for their own collections.
