Description

Hand Woolcombing and Spinning
A Guide to Worsteds from the Spinning-Wheel
Revised Edition

By Peter Teal

Here is a book for hand-spinners who aspire to a high standard of professional excellence in their work. The book rediscovers many of the old methods and applies modern technological principles to the forgotten trade of wool combing. It explains how to make the tools, how to prepare, dye and blend the fibre, and finally how to spin a worsted yarn of controlled quality and specification. The serious student of spinning will find vital information on how much twist to give a yarn for a stated end use; how much oil to apply to raw, scoured fibre; how to assess the suitability of a spinning-wheel for a specific type of yarn, and how to produce a yarn to internationally accepted standards.
