The summer issue of Spin-Off has what you love in every issue: techniques, fiber knowledge, and fascinating stories of spinners you'd love to meet. Discover unexpected ways to use a charkha for more than cotton, learn how to make the best alpaca yarn using the fleece you have, and find out how to prevent overtwisted yarn. Even the most committed traditional spinning wheel spinner may consider plugging in with Sarah Anderson's reasons to love an electric spinning wheel.

In keeping with our summer travel theme, we meet Lao women using cotton spindles in their daily lives, Himalayan spinners making cashmere yarn to support their families, and inquire into Rowland Ricketts' Japanese indigo project on a farm in Indiana. Inspired by the latest long-escaped sheep found in Australia, we examine why so many sheep escape shearing in that country.

Follow your spinning passion and curiosity in this issue of Spin-Off!

Projects include:

  • Chinese Tiles Scarf by Kate Larson 
  • Humane Pelt by Kathy Augustine 
  • Ojo de Dios Redux, designed by Vanessa Ewing, adapted and spun by Sara Greer
