Travel around the world and discover new ways to use the most exotic of fibers in the Spin-Off Winter 2016 issue. We begin with stopping in South America where Chris Switzer explains the differences in Alpacas and Llamas, and how to choose, handle, and work with the fibers. Then it’s on to the Cotton Belt in Weaver, North Carolina with Christina Oliveri for a wonderful narrative of her vacation to the Echoview Fiber Mill and the science of fiber processing. Leslie Ordal takes us through North America to educate on curly cashmere followed by a trip to the Middle East for a historical account of camel fibers by Judith MacKenzie. Jamie O’Connor meets us in Australia to talk about the Australian National Wool Museum. Finally, we end our journey with Jill Graham debunking the myths surrounding cashmere. With 5 beautiful projects and a gallery of personalized spinning wheels from around the world, the luxury issue will have you feeling like you need to indulge a little more (and then maybe a little more).

Projects include:

  • Pyrope Shawlette by Heather Zoppetti
  • Plainly Luxurious Scarf & Shawl by Sara Lamb
  • Textured Gradient Cowl by Jill Graham
  • The Last of Lucy by Amy Tyler
  • Handspun Lida Rose Socks by Anne Podlesak

Love it
These magazines are always of use to me. I especially liked the information on wheels. But all was good
It's only drawback is that it is download. Of course this is still very useful but now I have taken a subscription and have my spring issue in hardback so can read it in the kitchen - my favourite place to relax with the Aga. - Ferial from England
