Practical Spinner's Compendium

Spinners have the luxury of choice! There are so many fiber types available, and each calls out to be spun a different way. In The Practical Spinner's Guide series, experts on four different classes of fiber share their in-depth knowledge of how to spin yarn using cotton, flax, hemp, silk, wool, cashmere, and other luxury fibers. With step-by-step illustrated techniques, you'll find a wealth of useful, valuable, and - yes - practical information on spinning wool and other fibers.


Included in this kit:

Finullgarn_402 Practical Spinner's Guide: Wool
Paperback    

For thousands of years spinners have spun stunning yarns from wool, yet there are still many unanswered questions. What kind of prepared fibers are available, and what should you do with them? How do you choose a fleece? Should you process your fleece by hand or send it to a mill? Discover the answers to these questions and many more from fiber artist and shepherdess Kate Larson.
Finullgarn_436 Practical Spinner's Guide: Rare Luxury Fibers
Paperback

From angora to bison, camel to cashmere, there's a whole world of rare luxury fibers just waiting to be spun! Judith MacKenzie shares insights into working with uncommon (but readily available) luxury downs in a comprehensive, yet practical, guide for today's spinners.
  Practical Spinner's Guide: Silk
Paperback    

Silk is available in a bewildering range of forms, all of which need different degrees of processing. It is incredibly strong, has an amazing luster and affinity for dyes, is comfortable in warm and cool weather, and has little weight, but spinning enough yarn for a garment may take well over a month. Although spinning silk is not instant gratification, it is deeply satisfying when the work is complete.

  Practical Spinner's Guide: Cotton, Flax, Hemp
Paperback    

Cotton, flax, and hemp behave very differently from wool, and special handling is required. Learn how each fiber behaves, and how best to card, prep, and spin them, with specific instruction on trouble spots like drafting and adding twist. The author also covers finishing yarns - cleaning, setting twist, and plying - and even touches on what dye processes are best for adding color.
