Product Description

Review

"Anne Field has created a useful book that brings together the devore technique with a variety of textile processes. She has woven and knitted most of the samples, showing her dedication to thoroughly understanding and experimenting with devore." "-- Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot Summer 2010" Doing exactly what it says, this paperback teaches the novice spinner, in detail, about the different types of spinning machines, about different types of wool, the spinning process and the different techniques used, including preparing, tension, skeining and drafting from different fibres. As well as teaching the reader about spinning, the book contains many great projects with comprehensive instructions. A fabulous resource for novices interested in spinning.-Handmade Living I really liked this book and it would have been very useful to have when I first learnt to spin. The anatomy of a wheel and how it works is described, ratios and tensions are explained. Whether purchasing a new or secondhand wheel, advice is given regarding the different types. Fleece preparation, hand carding and combing are covered, as well as drum carding, techniques for different methods of spinning, and appropriate uses for the finished skeins. There are sections on animal, plant and manufactured fibres, mixing and matching fibres and how to blend them. There is an abundance of problem solving sections and useful tips throughout, and also more than a dozen projects for knitting, crochet and weaving. This book is less technical and easier to read than The Ashford Book of Spinning by the same author. I would suggest that this book is not limited to new spinners alone - it is always useful to have another resource book.-Journal for Weavers Spinners & Dyers

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By K. Platt TOP 100 REVIEWER on 13 Sept. 2011
Format: Paperback
This book is great for beginners with its step by step instructions and photographs. It contains much information from animal fibres to spinning wheels and I was surprised how thorough the book is. It covers fibres other than wool. It seems that it would be useful for more than the beginner. It also contains patterns for knitting, weaving and crochet. All manner of spinning processes is covered including different wheels and spindle plus carding and other practices. This is thorough enough to be your stand-by spinning reference.
