The Ashford Book of Learn to Spin
By Anne Field

With easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions, this reference guides the novice spinner through the essentials of getting started. The process is explained in detail, beginning with preparation of fleeces before demonstrating techniques such as worsted and woollen spinning methods, plying, adjusting tension, treadling, skeining, drafting, and blending. Helpful advice regarding spinning wheels and how they work is featured, and inspiring projects round out each chapter, clearly illustrating the techniques discussed in that particular section. Reviewing a wide range of fibers from wool, alpaca, and silk to mohair, cotton, and angora, this crafty how-to allows for abundant practice with knitting, crocheting, and weaving.
