Adventures in Soy, Bamboo, Banana, Steel, and More
with Patsy Zawistoski
DVD - 98 minutes
What are you spinning right now?
Bet it’s not bananas…or steel.
But did you know those materials can create some great fiber for spinning?
The textile industry is inventing new fibers at an astonishing rate. Many of these are based on recycled waste materials (yep, recycled, which means they are eco-friendly): tofu liquid, banana plants, sugar cane stalks, and more.
The results are often finer and softer than their natural counterparts (silk, cashmere, cotton), and gentler on the environment.
Patsy Zawistoski has researched a wide range of these fibers in depth, and has used them to spin up beautiful and useful yarns. Now, you will get all her great knowledge in this 98-minute video workshop. She’ll show you:

- Wrong Title - Not about Spinning
- I am very interested in all fibers but I fell a sleep in this video, took me a couple of times to get through it, kept waiting for it to get to the spinning but it never did. She gave infomation about different fibers but only spun one type of fiber. Should be titled Lecture on fiber identification using the burn test and our FTC regarding fibers. Dissappointed.

- Not as title would indicate
- Interesting info about many fibers but almost no actual spinning demos. She spun one bit of novelty yarn only. (Posted on 9/17/2015)
