Spin-Off Presents: How to Wash Wool
by Vicki Square
eBook | 20 Pages


This collection of gems from Spin-Off’s archives is full of ways to clean wool, from low-tech and easy to painstaking and labor-intensive. What all the articles have in common (besides a certain patina—these are oldies-but-goodies and don’t have the same design as our current issues) is a focus on getting each prized fleece from stinky to spectacular.

Selections from Handspun Treasures from Rare Wools

by Deborah Robson

eBook


Knowledgeable spinners can help protect endangered sheep for future generations of spinners to enjoy. The Spin-Off editorial team struck out to enlighten spinners about these rare wools and in 2002 published the book Handspun Treasures from Rare Wools edited by Deborah Robson. Since then, the book has gone out-of-print, but now we have compiled selections into an easy-to-download eBook!
