Spin Control by Amy King

Spin Control by Amy King


The blurb says 'for new or experienced spinners' but I think the book assumes that you are already able to treadle your wheel and draft your fibre. From there it takes the 'improving spinner' on a journey to a place where you are in control and able to make your yarn the way that you want it.

Know your worstead from your woollen and be able to decide which is the right one to use, know your top from your roving, whether to pre-draft. Be comfortable and knowledgeable about your wheel.

If you read Amy's blog http://boogieblather.wordpress.com/ you'll have guessed that she won't stop at the conventional. She goes off the beaten path with chapters about core spinning and other novelty techniques.

Good photography, in-depth information and inspiring ideas!
