3.0 out of 5 stars Not what it says on the tin, 26 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Spin To Weave: The Weaver's Guide to Making Yarn (Paperback)
As a spinner who weaves I was very disappointed by this book (though to be fair I had been able to see inside it before I bought it). Because the author usually weaves a warp-faced cloth she buys in most of her weft. This is no use to those of us who spin our own weft. There was very little on twist and nothing on different plies and how well they weave up and the effects you can get. We needed much more on energised yarns, leno and other techniques.
It seems that there is still a book to be written on this theme.
I found that "The Spinner's Book of Yarn Designs" by Sarah Anderson so very much more useful and fun to use, even though she is not specifically writing about spinning for weaving as this book claims to be.
