Spin Off Call for Submissions Winter 2020: Into the Wild!

Do untamed fibers and yarns call to you? Do you have a passion for musk ox? Have you immersed yourself in the world of wild silks? Are you excited to make the best handspun hiking socks, a warm shawl for navigating winter’s icy city streets, or an embroidered satchel perfect for gathering dyestuffs? We’d love to hear about your adventures with wild spinning in the upcoming call for submissions for the annual natural fibers issue.

Curious spinning fingers have long explored the natural world from domesticated fiber animals that thrive in wild places to ancient fibers such as nettle. But “wild” doesn’t evoke wilderness for everyone; it can also mean explorations in texture, color, and yarn construction. If you have explored the wild world of spinning, share your discoveries with Spin Off for the Into the Wild issue!
