Ready for a change from crimpy Merino and other finewool fleeces? Maybe it's time to give longwools a try!

With articles by Linda Berry-Walker, Rita Buchanan, Jane Fournier, Carol Huebscher Rhoades, Deborah Robson, Robin Russo, and Sarah Wroot, the collection includes articles from luminaries throughout Spin-Off's history.

Longwool sheep fleece is perfect for worsted spinning. Lustrous, long (of course!), and smooth, the locks of longwool are best suited to being combed, spun with a short forward draw, and made into hard-wearing fabrics. With relatively little grease, longwool fleeces are efficient—little weight is lost in the wash.

Nice to have information on several breeds in one place
The format was easy to follow and I loved the projects included. The authors provided personal experiences working with the different breeds that gave me the confidence to work with them. Review by Pamela (Posted on 10/3/2016)
