Product description


“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 itnerest 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....) [N]ewbies are given introductory advice; and experts are challenged to stretch their skills.” ―Yarn Market News

“Calling anything a complete guide sets reader expectations high, but happily this book really covers a lot and does it well.... Overall, this is a very good book for beginning spinners, especially for those interested in using a spinning wheel, and its technique and recipe sections have lots of ideas for inttermediate spinners like myself to explore.” ―Cindy K., Knitcircus

“[Y]ou will increase your knowledge and understanding of the ins and outs of spinning.... If you have wanted to learn to make your own hand spun or increase your skills, pick this book up and give it a spin.” ―Paula Moliver, examiner.com
