Various tools are covered in depth (types of wheels and spindles), different yarns that can be produced from the same fibre in different ways, and each case is well described and beaitufully illustrated.
Stephenie is regarded as one of the foremost hand-spinners of her generation, and the reason for this shines through the entire book.
