Extremely helpful
As always, Tom Knisley is a fantastic teacher. Some of the tape deals with spinning, which is less helpful to me, but I learned a lot about the quality and construction of yarn. Other information was VERY helpful: How to determine how much yarn is left on a cone, the weight of a yarn, the fiber content.. Well worth the money. Review by Goshen (Posted on 7/25/2015)
