5.0 out of 5 stars Very inspiring
I really want to learn more in my hand spinning and love how this book covers so many things. From processing a fleece to different spinning techniques this book is great.

I also love the projects at the end, they show off the yarn so well

One minute I like this, the next minute I'm not too sure. I will learn something new from this book, but not what I was expecting.

This review is from: Handspun: New Spins on Traditional Techniques (Paperback)
Following on from Intertwined, this book has beautiful examples of techniques for spinning yarns. There have been at least two other spinning books recently, however I feel this one has the edge because it contains good projects. Includes fibre preparation - even crazy carding, fabulous yarns that any yarnie would die for, features spinners and projects. Twists, tails, core spinning and more. Great photos, great content that should be in every spinner's hands. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.

1.0 out of 5 stars Style over substance, 13 Dec 2013

This review is from: Handspun: New Spins on Traditional Techniques (Paperback)
Pretty pictures of skinny models wearing stuff I wouldn't give house room to.
There is nothing in this book that I would like to make. Awful fingerless gloves in bumpy wool. Holey shawls, a furry collar for a man's jacket.
The author recommends a drum carder but gives no picture or idea of how to use one. The yarns look nice but clearly are unusable.
A big disappointment. I wanted to be inspired.
