1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money!
If you are looking for information on spinning with a wheel - don't buy this book! It sets you up to fail. If you are a beginner, please keep looking for other resources.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you know the difference between Woolen and Worsted?, 25 Nov. 2003

This review is from: The Weaving, Spinning, and Dyeing Book (Paperback)
This is a very detailed and all comprehensive book on "Weaving, Spinning, and Dyeing." It is packed with technical drawings that are mostly geared toward Native American craft; yet it also shows other traditional methods and equipment. There are several detailed pages on how to set up spinning wheels of different types. The book alone is worth knowing descriptions, such as Woolen vs. Worsted.

5.0 out of 5 stars The closest thing I've found to a textile lover's Bible!, 3 July 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: The Weaving, Spinning, and Dyeing Book (Paperback)
After having perused several books on the individual topics of weaving, spinning and dyeing, it was a complete delight to discover this magnificent tome! Rachel Brown's well-illustrated presentation of these crafts is a godsend for the new "fiberholic" and an invaluable reference for the experienced weaver or spinner. The explanations are thorough and easily understood. A must-have!

By A Customer
This review is from: The Weaving, Spinning, and Dyeing Book (Paperback)
This book includes wonderful information on primitive looms, reducing the expense of getting equipped to weave and making it more accessible to all income levels. The drawings are clear and informative and provide a real understanding of weaving and weaving equipment. Highly recommended!
