The book introduces readers to essential techniques such as drop spindle and wheel spinning. Additionally, the book discusses fibre preparation methods such as drafting, plying, carding and combing, and considers the many different fibres available, from wool and cotton to alpaca and mohair. In addition to spinning styles, the book also explores a wide variety of dyeing methods and guides readers to create their own unique yarn. Advice from professional yarn designers peppered throughout each chapter provides readers with invaluable tips to improve their technique. The book offers a highly useful 'Going Pro' section, packed with advice from contemporary yarn designers to aspiring home spinners on how to turn your passion into your profession. Completing the package is a luscious gallery of yarn to whet the readers' creative appetite.
