The Practical Spinner's Guide: Wool eBook
By Kate Larson

For thousands of years, spinners have spun stunning yarns from wool, yet there are still many unanswered questions: What kind of prepared fibers are available, and what should you do with them? How do you choose a fleece? Should you process your fleece by hand or send it to a mill? Discover the answers to these questions and many more from fiber artist and shepherdess Kate Larson in The Practical Spinner's Guide: Wool eBook, which shows the best techniques for how to spin wool fleece, wool roving, and more exciting techniques.


Within you'll find:

  • An overview of sheep breeds and the characteristics of their fleece
  • Washing, carding, combing, and blending fibers
  • Purchasing and working with prepared fibers
  • Techniques for spinning and plying wool to achieve the right yarn for your projects
  • Advice on caring for fibers to protect them from unwanted pests and other problems

Whether you're an experienced spinner or just learning to spin, with fleeces sheared from your own flock or indie dyed fibers, you'll find a wealth of useful, valuable, and practical information in The Practical Spinner's Guide: Wool eBook.
