Pre-owned book: Start Spinning: Everything You Need to Know to Make Great Yarn by Maggie Casey



For knitters, crocheters, and weavers ready to make their own yarn, this handy guide provides detailed instructions for spinning both on a spindle and a wheel, and offers a special section devoted to troubleshooting and wheel maintenance that keeps projects on track. It offers a comprehensive look at the various available fiber options, choosing and preparing each type of fiber for use, and crafting these materials into ready-to-work pieces. A final chapter on the various uses of spun yarn focuses on project planning, with definitions and context for measuring wraps per inch, determining yards for specific projects, and choosing a yarn size.

Suzie says: “From getting to know your spindle or wheel to creating balanced yarn and grading your own fleece, this approachable little guide is essential reading for new spinners.”
