Explore the development of spindles across the globe and learn how contemporary spinners have adapted spindle techniques and used modern materials to continue the spindle’s evolution. See how the handspindle offers amazing portability, challenge, entertainment, and productivity. From Andrea Mielke Schroer’s article on spinning with a stick, a belt, and a potato, to spinning on the go with Devin Helmen, to Amelia Garripoli’s connecting the historical evolution of spindles across continents, spindles remain a timeless tool!

Learn skills for using all kinds of spindles, including supported, foot-powered, drop spindles, and more. Delve into features on fibers from Gotland to angora, give great wheels and kick spindles a spin, and decode the meaning of all those numbers used in the different yarn categories and yarn measurement systems. In addition to the handspun and crocheted Swirling Shell Shawl project by Jennifer Raymond, the issue contains 10 how-to-spin articles and six must-read features.
