The Practical Spinner's Guide: Silk
Book

Author and expert spinner Sara Lamb will discuss the various forms in which silk is available—combed top, bricks, noils, hankies, and bells—and how best to card, prep, and spin them, specifically touching on trouble spots like drafting and adding twist.

She also covers finishing yarns—cleaning and degumming, setting twist, and plying—and even touches on what dye processes are best for adding color, as well as how to blend silk into other spinning fibers.

Finally, she includes very brief discussions of spinning for both knitting and weaving, discussing the properties of woven and knitted fabric and what the spinner needs to take into account while creating the yarn and using it in a subsequent project.

  • Spin all types and preparations of silk
  • Draft even the slickest silks easily
  • Spin enough fine yarn for a project without strain or fatigue
  • Ply and finish yarns for maximum luster and durability
  • Choose the right silk for your project (and avoid problem fiber)
