Ready for a change from crimpy Merino and other finewool fleeces? Maybe it's time to give longwools a try!

With articles by Linda Berry-Walker, Rita Buchanan, Jane Fournier, Carol Huebscher Rhoades, Deborah Robson, Robin Russo, and Sarah Wroot, the collection includes articles from luminaries throughout Spin-Off's history.

Longwool sheep fleece is perfect for worsted spinning. Lustrous, long (of course!), and smooth, the locks of longwool are best suited to being combed, spun with a short forward draw, and made into hard-wearing fabrics. With relatively little grease, longwool fleeces are efficient—little weight is lost in the wash.

Inside, you'll find:

  • Fiber Basics: Border Leicester by Robin Russo
  • Fiber Basics: English Leicester by Jane Fournier

Nice to have information on several breeds in one place
The format was easy to follow and I loved the projects included. The authors provided personal experiences working with the different breeds that gave me the confidence to work with them. Review by Pamela (Posted on 10/3/2016)
