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. (Posted on 10/3/2016)
