The Practical Spinner's Guide: Cotton, Flax, Hemp

$19.87 26% off

Spinners are increasingly looking at alternative fibers, but few resources existed - until now!

Cotton, flax, and hemp behave very differently from wool, and special handling is required. Within, Stephenie discusses how each fiber behaves 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, setting twist, and plying - and even covers what dye processes are best for adding color. Finally, she includes a discussion of spinning for both knitting and weaving, covering fabric properties of each fiber, and what the spinner needs to take into account while creating the yarn and using it in a subsequent project.
