Handspinner's Handbook

Author: Bette Hochberg

From the author: We are the first hand spinners in history to have access to animal and vegetable fibers from all over the world. I have included a wide range of available fibers, and I have personally tested and spun these fibers many times, so I can be sure of what I write.

Through the ages, the fast and easy way to spin yarn was a practical necessity. Today, many unnecessarily slow and complex methods have crept into use. This book gives clear, simple directions for becoming a good wheel spinner. It is for the beginner, and for the experienced spinner.

Perhaps you are sitting at your wheel for the very first time, with a handful of wool, and are wondering how on earth to begin. The directions will lead you, step by step, past the snags and the snarls, into smooth, rhythmic spinning.

Or you may already know how to spin wool quite well, but have been afraid to try cotton because you heard it was difficult; or silk, because the unspun fibre is so beautiful you think your spinning may spoil it. Perhaps you want to know how to spin alpaca so it comes out fuzzy; or what to wash linen with; or whether mohair will shrink. You will find the information that enables you to spin any natural fibre, with confidence.
