 COMING NEXT ISSUE

The Fall 2009 issue is all about natural fiber to celebrate the International Year of Natural Fiber! Since each issue of Spin-Off is all about natural fiber, we thought we’d take it to an extreme this time and include articles about how to start at the very beginning!

• Look forward to an article by Michael Cook on how to raise your own silk worms.
• Ever thought about growing cotton? Phreadde and Dan Davis share their vast knowledge for growing cotton bolls.
• Judith MacKenzie McCuin and a group of women have been spinning with the wolves—wait until you hear about the yarns they’ve spun.
• And of course, what issue of Spin-Off would be complete without sheep’s wool? Learn all about Scottish Blackfaced/Bluefaced Leiceister sheep and their wool.
