Spin-Off Master's Collection
The transformations that you are able to accomplish with spinning never cease to amaze. What begins with shearing a Corriedale sheep can end in the most beautiful pair of wool mittens that you've ever seen - thanks to spinning. You're able to create yarns of certain diameters, explore various yarn structures through plying, and take virtually any fiber and turn it into yarn better than anything a mill can provide. But we can get so caught up in the tactile pleasure of spinning that we don't take time to truly understand the how and why. How do our wheels and spindles work? Why do we ply, draft and card? Where do the roots of our cherished craft begin? The Spin-Off Master's Collection pulls together some of our best and most informative spinning resources to help you understand spinning on a more intimate level. You'll learn from world-renowned spinners such as Rita Buchanan, Judith MacKenzie, and the late Alden Amos. With this collection, you will truly master the art of spinning and understand the amazing science that manifests itself in your works.
