The art of spinning is growing in popularity as knitters, new and experienced, want to make their own yarn. All it takes is some fluff, a spindle or wheel, and a little practice! Veteran spinning teacher Maggie Casey takes complete novices to competent spinners in the easy-to-download Start Spinning eBook.

Based on Maggie's time-tested Spinning 101 workshop, which she has taught for twenty-two years, readers will learn to spin the yarn of their dreams beginning with an introduction to the various types of fibers available, choosing and preparing (or buying) fiber with which to spin, and detailed instructions for both spinning on a spindle and spinning on a wheel, with extra detail on Wheel 101 complete with plenty of photos. Maggie also offers a special section on troubleshooting and wheel maintenance, plus tips and tricks for creating better yarns. Then she moves into plying, setting twist, using a niddy noddy, and woolen and worsted spinning. Maggie concludes with a chapter on uses for spun yarn, which covers wraps per inch, measuring yards for projects, and size of yarn.

Start Spinning covers all the basics newbies need to spin their own fabulous yarn. You'll discover that using yarn handspun to your own specifications is not only rewarding but helps you become more comfortable creating new and wonderful yarns, opening up a world of possibilities! Dive into the colorful world of spinning with this fabulous Start Spinning eBook.

Great, Helpful Book
I just started spinning and I don't really know anyone who can help me in person, so this book is an awesome reference for people like me.

I am really glad that I bought the hard copy because I can take it where ever I need to go and can prop it up next to my wheel, since I do not own a tablet. Thanks for putting out a great product!

I own Hard Copy but BEST BOOK!!
This is one of the best books hands down for someone new to start to finish needle fiber hobby. Goes from fiber beginnings; animal, vegetable and mineral all the way to cellulose recycled fibers like corn milk and rayobs as well as some ultra exotics such as Spidersilk and truly priceless rare true seasilk from mollusks!!

Travels through processing fibers combing carding, spinning both spindle, wheel and others.

Covers dye processes and has little workshops and helpful worksheets.

Has patterns for projects working from raw wool to finished dyed projects.

I love this book!!
